Antique German Silver Wine Taster, circa 1695

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique German silver wine taster; an addition to our 17th century wine and drinks related silverware collection. This exceptional antique German silver wine taster has a circular rounded, lobed panelled form. The molded, paneled 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 color. The hallmarks struck to this impressive wine taster include: Maker's mark: Untraced City mark: Augsburg, Germany Assay scrape: Zickzack line (Tremolierstrich) Condition: This antique silver wine taster is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition, all 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 are all very clear. Dimensions: Length across handles 13.3cm/5.2" Diameter 11.2cm/4.4" Height 4.5cm/1.8" Weight: 2.9 troy ounces/90.8g Maker: Untraced Maker's Marks Date: circa 1695 Origin: Augsburg, Germany Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of continental silverware.
