This is a good quality, heavy-gauge Edwardian silver child's cup, with banded flared rim and cast C-shaped handle. Its simplicity in style and form means it would suit a girl or a boy.

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.
