ANTIQUE SILVER CHRISTENING MUGS

The tradition of giving Christening mugs as gifts at Christenings is thought to date back to ancient drinking vessels found in Northern Europe, and to symbolise the Holy Grail. Silver examples were given due to the health properties of silver, and the intrinsic value, representing the desire for the Childs success and long life. While early 18th Century silver examples are rare, they are still possible to find.
