An endearing take on a traditional christening gift, this sterling silver egg cup stands on gold plated chicken legs.
Made by renowned silversmiths Francis Howard, the egg cup looks like it could scuttle off the table at any moment! Silver egg cups are a popular christening present, and date from the days when gifts for young babies had to be both practical and a potential investment. These days, this beautiful egg cup is more likely to be found displayed proudly on a shelf, rather than being used for toast soldiers!
The chicken-leg egg cup is made from 925 sterling silver, hallmarked in the Sheffield Assay Office.
Francis Howard silversmiths was established in Sheffield, in 1870; and is still run by the Howard family today.
The egg cup is presented in quality gift packaging. If you’d like to personalise the gift with an inscription, please contact us for a quote.
