A lovely antique silver child's porringer, in traditional Queen Anne style, although it was made in Georgian times.

The porringer is decorated with curved lobes and flutes, and the cartouche is surrounded by foliage. The porringer also has punched floral decoration, and the S shaped handles are banded.
