This Charming antique French Silver Coupe of Classical Design was a French traditional presentation item for Weddings, Anniversaries and special occasions.
Normally it would have an engraved message on its side and used as a large Wine Taster for joint celebratory tastings and toastings. This example has not been engraved.
The Coupe features Scroll Handles that have small Heart terminals at the base of the handles, and a border of Greek Palmettes at the Base.
There is a French Minerva Silver mark and an unclear maker's stamp. The size is approx.8" across, 4"high x 5+" in diameter....produced CA.1890.
A wonderful gift for a special occasion....or to use.....
