    A common baby gift in the immediate post-World War II era so 1950s likely.

    Thank you for this information. It looks like it was never used, just given.

    I don't know about this one specifically, but sterling baby cups can be much earlier than the 1950's. One in my wife's family is from the first decade of the 1900's, and the tradition goes back earlier than that.

    It's definitely an orange and blossoms - this is from a 2005 Lunt catalog:

    Just as an added bit of information, Lunt's equipment, including molds and dies, were sold off in 2010 after they filed for Chapter 11.

    I think you got it. I was thinking sunflower with those dots but an orange could be right.
