Oak tree symbolism
Steadfast and enduring, strong and mighty, the Oak tree is the very essence of England and symbolises: hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, liberty and endurance.
The underside of box shows the Worshipful Company of Pewterers and our maker's marks and the words "Hand crafted in lead free pewter Glover & Smith England"
The Christening keepsake box is 5 cm (1.9”) in diameter and comes, with the rolled certificate, in a black presentation gift box.
We hand stamp the central panel using traditional, industrial tools to indent every single letter into the pewter. with the proverb "Great oaks from little acorns grow" is engraved on the underside. Variations in the marks made during the hammering process are to be expected, and alignment and spacing 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 box will never flake like a silver plated Christening gift. To clean just wash with warm soapy water.
All our Christening designs are completely nickel free and made exclusively by us in Wiltshire, England.
