'Great Oaks' Christening Egg Cup and Spoon
Our Christening egg cup and spoon set comes complete with a ribbon tied certificate for you to add your own personal message.
Unusual Christening gifts
The silver coloured egg cup features the English proverb "Great oaks from little acorns grow" repeated around the edge and the specially designed spoon has a delicate acorn finial.
A lasting keepsake for both the child and the family.
This charming Christening gift for boys and girls is a lasting keepsake, designed to be used and appreciated later in their adult life, long after the baby toys have been out grown and handed on.
The certificate does not specify Christening so it can be given for other occasions too.
Oak tree symbolism
Mighty, strong, enduring and steadfast, the Oak tree represents the very essence of England and symbolises hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, endurance and liberty.
The egg cup is 4 cm (1.6”) in diameter and 3 cm (1.2”) tall and the spoon is approx. 11 cm (4.3”) long.
We also offer a personalised hand stamped version of the egg cup, see below.
All Glover and Smith Christening designs are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter).
Because we use solid metal the surface of your Christening egg cup will never flake like silver plated Christening gifts.To clean just wash with warm soapy water.
All our Christening designs are completely nickel free and made exclusively by us in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
