Elegant French vermeil wine taster / tastevin with Napoleon I medal thumb rest. The medal portrays Napoleon I in profile, wearing a tricorne, is inscribed NAPOLEON I and signed with the monogram RL of French jeweler / medalist / goldsmith Louis Armand Rault (1847 - 1903). The bowl is hallmarked in the center (twice) with initials C&B below two anchors. The French orfevre Albert Caillat used a makers mark of two anchors facing each other / deux ancres opposées l'une à l'autre in the 1910 to 1919 period. We have seen similarly shaped tastevins with thumb rest described as being from the Burgundy region. The raised circular center of the bowl is surrounded by smaller raised circles that guide the wine to elongated (for white wine) and circular (for red wine) cavities meant to reflect the light and better judge the wine's color and clarity. Perfect gift for a sommelier! In very good used condition with minor gilt wear as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 3 15/16" widest point (including medal); bowl 3 3/8" diameter; 1" high.
Weight: 2.105 oz (59.8 grams) approximately.
