Tiffany & Co, Elsa Peretti, sterling silver Padova baby cup or Christening cup. 925 in an oval and'Italy' in uppercase. (The designer being based in Italy). Height to handle top approx 67mm, just under 2 2/3 inches.
The cup is part of the Padova design range. The creator, Elsa Peretti took the pattern/design to other products which included baby spoons and forks see my other current listing for a spoon and fork pair.
The design is simple but it has been hugely successful and pre-owned versions of Padova designs achieve good prices. This cup has signs of light use on the outside. Good for a piece approaching 30-40 years old.
It has the odd superficial scratch on the outer silver work. The inside of the cup and the base in particular has lots of little nicks from stirring and likely a spoon being dropped in the bowl. It's not conspicuous being inside the cup and the nicks are evenly spread showing normal use.A superb collectable and giftable piece of silver. Items are sent insured, tracked and signed for.
