One of the prettiest Victorian Silver Baby Cups I have been able to acquire recently, this is a petit treasure for your collection. Most often presented as a luxury Christening gift to a new baby in the family, these heirlooms were cherished and loved well, passing from generation to generation. This cup is triple plated, straight shape with large formed "C" handle, this has beautiful hand chased and etched floral design in the center forming an elegant cartouche, which is engraved with A B L.

This collectible cup has a Greek motif band on both the top and bottom, it is an applied border. Lots of gorgeous details , signed on the bottom with WLC. There is wear, as would be expected, from generations of babies using this, these days a cup like this is mostly given as an heirloom gift, or for a collection, but it certainly still usable. Hallmarked and stamped Middletown Triple Plate. {Middletown was in business from 1864, the company became part of the International Silver Company in 1898.}
