"Baby Silver"

6"H X 6"W   Oil on Raymar Canvas Panel   $65.00 unframed plus S&H

My mother received this sterling silver baby cup in the 1940's with my name engraved on it.  At the time these little cups or silver spoons were baby shower gifts. 
It has been sitting in a closet for years, and I wonder if it was ever really used.  You certainly couldn't put juice in it, and I can picture a baby biting on the metal.
