Baby & Youth Silver

Baby & Youth Silverware has been a traditional gift for centuries. Typical pieces would be Baby Flatware which could include spoons, forks,  food pushers, long handled feeding spoons, and napkin clips for the infant; Youth Flatware for the older child which would include knives, forks, and spoons; Baby & Youth Cups of various sizes; and Porringers, Bowls & Dishes; sometimes there will be a combining of several of these categories or addition of other pieces to create a Youth Set. A final category might be Toys which would include early coral and bells teething sticks and their more modern equivalents; unfortunately it is category we have rarely ever had any examples in. Offerings within each category will be alphabetical by manufacturer. Some early youth flatware may be listed on our Coin Silver Place Flatware web page under Youth & Miniature Flatware.
