The chased decorated border encircling the cup incorporates a shaped vacant cartouche ornamented with chased scrolling acanthus leaf decoration.


The domed spreading foot of the cup is encircled with an egg and tongue decorated border.

The four pieces of this fine and impressive christening set are fitted to the original hinged, shaped, leatherette presentation box.


The box has a velvet and sating lined interior which displays the retailer's mark 'Bracher & Sydenham, Jewellers, 30-30a Queen Victoria Street, Reading'.
