Buyer Protection Guaranteed

French, c.1730
1.75” high x 3.5” wide x 4.5” deep

A really lovely little sommelier’s wine taster in untouched original condition. With a finely turned rim and a looped handle, so it could be attached to a belt, this is a rare piece. There is an historic loss to the rim in one place and various little scars and bruises, but overall this rare survivor is in excellent condition.
