A silver child's cup made during the latter part of the Second World War. The piece is a true cup shape with a swan-neck handle, while the lower section decorated with simple, stepped graduated rings. It would make a perfect silver christening gift.

An ever-popular christening gift, children's silver mugs have been around for several centuries. A lidless drinking vessel with a handle, a silver child's mug was traditionally used for serving hot drinks. Although many were made in pewter, silver was the preferred material because it kept the drink hot and did not taint its taste.
