Details

The tastevin is the old tasting-cup used by tasters and wine-producers. According to a custom going back to the 15th or 16th century, it is given as a christening present, for it is a tool rather than an 'objet d'art' and people of Burgundy keep it in their pocket. This is a very good silver tastevin / wine taster with two intertwining serpents for the handle. It is fully hallmarked on the side London 1972. This taster was made by the very prestigious firm Garrard & Co Ltd. The weight of the taster is 102 grams.
