ANTIQUE SILVER PAP BOATS

The silver pap boat was first introduced towards the start of the 18th Century, although ‘pap’ itself had been consumed since the 16th Century. The design is similar to a small sauce boat, or butter boat, but without a handle or feet, and it was originally used to feed a mixture of water and bread, named pap, to infants and those who could not feed themselves. Around the start of the 19th Century they were replaced by feeding bottles, and their manufacture was stopped. Early examples, and those with good legible hallmarks, are highly collectible.
