In the religious ritual of a baptism baby or small child are given their baptism name. The ceremony is that the priest uses a shell to pour the holy water or distilled water on the young child's head. The christening ceremony anoints the child with his/her name.

This wonderful shell was made by William Weston, London ca. 1820s-1830s and is marked EP. (Electroplate.) There is a monogram "Lillie" written in old script making this a delightful find.

The measurements are 2 3/4 inches long by 1 3/8 inches wide and the weight is 17.22 grams.

This is such a special antique treasure you will love passing down for generations to come.
