Silvery has been the present of choosing for baptisms for hundreds of years. Often it was given by sponsors as a foundation for a "nest egg" for the years to come - silver has an inner value that is rarely depreciated. In the Tudor era it was customary for gifted ears to be given to the more affluent family.
They were silver tablespoons, on which one of the disciples was pictured at the finale. An infant with a really well-to-do backdrop could have expected to get a full sentence of thirteen tablespoons, including all twelve disciples and the "Master Spoon" with the statue of Jesus. Birth with a silver spoon in your mouth" is often seen as a derivation of this tradition, as only a prosperous baby would get such a present.
Since the 1850s more and more silver objects have been given at baptisms. Serviette napkin circles, eggscups, spoons and porrons were introduced at that time, and even today the infants baptized today receive the same Viktorian baptismal kits that were given to their great-grandparents over a hundred years ago.
The silver baptismal present is truly a heritage for the whole host of families that will be kept and appreciated by many future....
