Reed & Barton ~ Questions/Help Please

I bought this wonderful little baby cup for .25 and am having trouble finding out the date/era it may have been manufactured or the pattern name. I assume it may be silver plated, but then again, it may not be! Anything anybody may be able to add would make me happy. Thanks.

Twenty five CENTS????? Really??
It's plate....don't know the name of the pattern....but who cares!!\
Picture that as a gift filled with rose buds with a voile ribbon on the handle? Or filled with candy canes and accompanied by a container of hot chocolate mix?
A quarter?? Really???
Linda C....sitting at a walnut Sheraton-esque table that cost $2.25....

Sheesh Linda C....we'd probably make a good team. Just think of the possibilities ~~ lol!

Well what really grabbed at my heartstrings was the inscription...."Little Dorothy". Just can't imagine anyone putting this in a Church Rummage Sale unless they just don't do, or can't be bothered, "polishing".

And before you ask, no, I don't know anyone named Dorothy. Couldn't leave "Little Dorothy" there all by herself, could I? lol

Poor Little one loved her enough to keep her baby cup!!
But really.....who inscribes a baby cup to "Little Dorothy"????

RE: Reed & Barton ~ Questions/Help Please

Probably a grandma! Nice buy! I would have brought it home too.
