It is almost a birth right for a French child to receive a baby cup at birth, most often with its first name and its birth date right underneath. It is meant as a lifetime keepsake and will be used in later years as a pencil cup or for makeup pencils. Children also often receive a cup for their baptismal or baby naming ceremonies. The Nathalie baby cup is slightly flared towards the top and underscored by a double line near the rim. It is suitable for all genders. When not in use as a baby cup set in middle of the table for small flower arrangements.
