The child’s set, or Christening set, became a popular gift during the 19th Century, made even more so by Queen Victoria who often gave a boxed gift to her relations on their Christening day. Originally these sets were child sized cutlery sets, often made in the same flatware pattern used by the adults, and comprised of a knife, fork and spoon, with other items being added for larger sets such as napkin rings, mugs, plates and bowls. Nowadays we refer to most boxed items for use by children as a child set.
