German Silver Wine Taster - Antique Circa 1695


An exceptional, fine and impressive antique German silver wine taster; an addition to our 17th century wine and drinks related silverware collection

SKU C2000

This exceptional antique German silver wine taster has a circular rounded, lobed panelled form.

The moulded, panelled surface of the wine taster is embellished with the later engraved inscription 'To J.C.P.L from his Godmother E.L.A.E.T, Oct 5th 1894'.

The well of this silver wine taster is encircled with engraved textured decoration.

The impressive example of antique silverware is fitted with two cast scrolling handles with plain elevated thumbpieces.

This drinking vessel retains the original gilding to the interior; this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.

The hallmarks struck to this impressive wine taster include:

Maker's mark: Untraced

City mark: Augsburg, Germany

Assay scrape: Zickzack line (Tremolierstrich)

Maker: Untraced Maker's Mark

This antique silver wine taster is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition, for its type.

The gilding to the exterior surface of the taster has worn in keeping with age.

The German hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and assay mark to the underside are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of continental silverware.
