Description


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)
