About this item
A good quality large silver wine taster with an attractively arranged pattern of circular and linear indentations to aid the tasting of different wines. Inset with an Elizabethan silver sixpence and finished with an oval thumb rest over a looped handle. Hallmarked for London 1912, makers D & J (Daniel & John) Welby Ltd.
It measures 9.3cm (3 11/16") wide (12.2cm (4 3/4") including the handle) and 2.2cm (7/8") high. It weighs 101g / 3.2 troy ounces.
In very good condition with no damage or repair. The rim is very fractionally distorted and the coin is pretty worn on the inside with only the top of the crown and lower edge of the robes and outer wording obvious. The other side is much clearer with some rubbing to the edge but the date isn't visible. Only minor handling wear to the body.
