COMMENTS: We are so pleased to be offering this wonderful antique sterling silver keepsake porringer from Tiffany and Co. Most likely this was a gift for a new born child and was presented by the hospital to the proud parents. The porringer would become a treasured family heirloom. The porringer is ca 1902 - 1906.
The design is classic. The front of the bowl is engraved to Bessie Coughlan from Shore Rd. Hospital. The child's name is in elegant script and the name of the hospital is in the classic Tiffany Century font. This timeless classic is well over a hundred years old making it a true antique.
The inside of the porringer is in excellent antique condition. The handle has an attractive cut out and hand engraved handle. The engraving on the handle is somewhat unusual. The bottom of the porringer is completely hallmarked for Tiffany & co. The porringer will hold 5 gills. The porringer shows minor wear which is mostly light surface scratches which would polish out. This is normal and consistent to the age of this piece. There are no dings, dents or repairs. We did not clean this item and it has developed an aged patina. It is an authentic antique and its inherent beauty is so lovely. It has withstood the test of time with grace and elegance.
This timeless child's porringer would make a wonderful addition to any child's collection, Tiffany & co collection or sterling silver collection. Doll collectors may like to add this type of child's utensil to their collection. It is charming.
