Before & After
Sterling Baby Cup

 


This baby cup was actually run over by a truck in the 1920s. The handle had to first be removed and reformed. The cup had to be annealed numerous times to soften the metal, allowing for the creases to be opened and the body to be reformed. The imperfections along the hollow top edge could not be corrected because the metal was very thin. Any tool used to repair the edge would result in a poor result, or worse—tearing the metal! Notice that the engraving on the right side of the body was preserved. The 90-year-old owner gave the cup to his granddaughter on her first Christmas.
