|1847 Wm. Rogers First Love Flatware|
|First Love baby cup|
Naturally, seeing as how I rescue other folks' ancestor photos all the time, I felt sure I could probably manage to find out something about the person whose name was engraved on the cup. (That would make the purchase a little more justified in my mind.)
But, even with the full name of "Nancy Kay Knight" and a date of 4-10-51 to work with, I'm finding no data convincing enough to tie the cup to any particular person. Of course this little girl would now be a grown lady of age 63, probably long married. And finding people who are most probably still living is a lot more difficult than finding folks who died a century ago.
So, I'm posting this item in the hopes that someone out there knows who this particular Nancy Kay Knight is and, if interested in claiming her baby cup, will get in touch.
Mine, on the left, is in severe need of polishing. And I haven't identified the pattern. Yet. Just what I needed, another project. Thanks, Nancy Kay.
