Pewter Acorn Egg Cup and Oak Leaf Spoon | Christening Gifts for Girls and Boys
Our beautifully textured acorn 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 lovely natural texture of an acorn cup and when an egg is placed in it, it has the appearance of an acorn.
The egg cup has the English proverb "Great oaks from little acorns grow" around the inner base. The specially designed spoon has a delicate oak leaf finial and rests in grooves on top of the acorn cup.
A lasting keepsake for both child and 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 outgrown and handed on.
The certificate does not specify Christening so it can be given for other occasions too, for example naming Ceremonies and Baptisms.
Acorns are a symbol of strength, potential, fertility and immortality. They remind us to look deep inside and discover the seed of something wonderful that is yet to develop. It will take time, persistence and the right nurturing, but something magnificent is waiting inside that precious acorn.
Acorns are also considered to be a lucky symbol, representing prosperity, youthfulness, power and spiritual growth.
The egg cup is 4.5 cm (1.8”) in diameter and 2.5 cm (1”) tall and the spoon is 12.5 cm (4.9”) long.
The acorn egg cup comes with a certificate and a presentation box.
Each Glover and Smith Christening design is handmade from solid polished lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead content in old pewter).
Because we use solid metal the surface of your acorn Christening egg cup will never flake like other 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.
