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. Silver was the preferred material because it kept the drink hot and did not taint its taste.
