Personalised 'From Little Acorns' Christening Egg Cup
This is the unique personalised hand stamped version of our popular egg cup and spoon set.
Personalised Christening gifts
The egg cup and spoon comes complete with a ribbon tied certificate for you to add your own personal message.
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.
We can fit up to 16 characters or spaces onto the inside of the egg cup and it’s up to you what you want... what would yours say?
Oak tree symbolism
Mighty, strong, steadfast and enduring, the Oak tree represents the very essence of England and symbolises hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, liberty and endurance.
A lasting keepsake for both the child and the family and the certificate does not specify Christening so it can be given for other occasions too.
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.
Our hand stamped designs differs from engraved items because we use traditional, industrial tools to indent every single letter by hand. Therefore variations in the marks made during the hammering process are to be expected and spacing and alignment of letters are not exact; it all adds to the charm and make your gift unique!
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 a silver plated Christening egg cup. To clean just wash with warm soapy water.
All our Christening designs are completely nickel free and made exclusively by us in Wiltshire, England.
