Silver Egg Cup for Baby

A new mum was asked "Are you pleased with your new arrival"? Pleased???, I am "over the moon", she exclaimed. It was on this basis that the products were designed and the collection given its name.

This concise range of sterling silver Christening gifts is interesting in that the use of the items develops as the baby grows. This is certain to attract comment from your friends and family.

An organic boiled egg, what better way for your baby to begin to enjoy the good things in life? Served in a sterling silver egg cup with optional matching sterling silver spoon. Both decorated with the moon and star design which is sure to amuse. Add a slice of good quality fresh bread and butter. This will really emphasize the importance of a good breakfast to begin the day and start baby off with good habits.

A description of our manufacturing process is given by John Campbell. The egg cup itself is a one piece, 4 operations spinning and is formed on a spinning lathe by wrapping a silver disc around a preformed series of "chucks". The skill of the silversmith is stopping the once flat silver disc from buckling as it starts to become a hollow vessel. Once complete, the egg cup is transported to one of the UK Assay Offices for testing and hallmarking. In the case of JA Campbell, this is the London Assay Office, our closest. After a positive result from the laboratory the hallmarks are burned into the surface of the metal using a laser. This process is one of the oldest forms of consumer protection and started in the 1400s.

Upon return to the silversmith's workshop, the silver egg cup is polished using 4 different grades of compound. It is then decorated with the moon and star motifs and finally packed into the unusual presentation box for dispatch.

All the sterling silver collection is handmade from hallmarked sterling silver in England at our Brentwood workshop - made up to a standard, not down to a price.

The "Over the Moon" sterling silver Christening gift collection consists of 10 items and has a price range that will suit several members of the same family. Ideal to build a matching collection.

Our range of sterling silver baby gifts can be engraved with names and/or dates which will personalize the gift and mark the occasion. A selection of baby gifts that will be cherished forever and handed down, forming an interesting and important part of your family history.
