Sterling silver baby gifts are both beautiful and highly practical. Silver baby cups, spoons, rattles and such are useful both for mother and child. And of course, today's sterling silver baby spoon is tomorrow's heirloom.

Sterling silver baby gifts, like cups and spoons are available new, of course. But they're also available as antiques. Many people prefer giving cups and other baby silver of the vintage variety.

Sterling Silver Baby Gifts: The Antique Advantage

For one thing, vintage sterling silver baby gifts are often comprised of heavier silver than one would find today. A sterling silver cup made in 1925 simply has more weight than one made today. Standards of silver production, too, were higher. A vintage cup was most likely made with superior craftsmanship.

Finally, with vintage sterling silver baby gifts, one has the opportunity to find impressively monogrammed pieces. Of course, contemporary buyers can have any antique cup monogrammed. But, unlike today, monogramming in the United States was once considered an art form. Sterling silver serving pieces of all varieties were once prized for the execution, level of detail, and overall beauty of the monogram itself. Vintage sterling silver baby gifts can often be found with these ornately monograms of first initials, and in some cases, first names.
