Sold

Turn-of-the-century sterling silver baby cup rich in period assumptions. Made by William B. Kerr in Newark.

Upward tapering sides and scroll handle. Acid-etched frieze depicting sailor-suited, flag-holding, all-American boy with exotic coevals in native dress relegated to background. Symbolic imagery enhanced with verse: “Little Indian, Sioux or Crow, little frosty Eskimo, little Turk or Japanese—Oh! Don’t you wish that you were me?”

Ahem.

Fully marked and numbered 1483. Fine condition with strong definition.

Dimensions: H 2 7/8 x W 4 x D 2 3/4 in. Weight: 4 troy ounces. #BS797
