Super solid silver egg cup and spoon in original case. The egg cup is very attractive with a lovely raised border around the top and the base of the stand. The spoon is a lovely simple design with no decoration. Hallmarks are visible on both the egg cup and the spoon for the Birmingham Assay Office with a date mark for 1955. The silversmith's maker's mark is also clear for Broadway & Co.
The set comes in the original black leatherette case with gilded scroll decoration on the edges of the lid, and has an attractive brass catch. The interior is lined with black velvet and cream satin.
A lovely set especially for a Christening or new baby.
