My family (both sides) are 6 or 7 generation Americans and consequently we have a lot of stuff that’s been passed down so choosing something to fit this “prized heritage” theme was not easy. I finally settled on something that was right in front of me all along, my father Thomas’s pure coin silver baby cup. These were probably the norm for a lot of households but fell out of popularity just like the sterling baby rattle and sterling baby spoon. I found his cup tarnished in the back of a cupboard years ago and it’s been my desk organizer ever since……still tarnished, just the way I like it.
In Heritage we ask folks we admire to share their most prized possession.
