The taster has an inscription "Michel Nuits 1795". It bears two hallmarks on the top rim: a Maker's mark and a small hallmark that looks like a crab. The taster is very well-made. It has couple of small uneven areas (dents) at the bottom (see images), otherwise no other damages. Width with handle: 4.0 inches, bowl diameter: 3 1/8 inches, height: 7/8 inches, weight: 3.5 oz.
