Rare silver tastevin or wine tasting cup, marked in rectangle "E. Profilet" (Emile Profilet, b. 1801-d.1868, working New Orleans, Louisiana c. 1822, Natchez, Mississippi 1823-1868). Shallow, slightly bellied form with molded edge and triple reeded handle. 1"h x 2-7/8" diameter. 1.82 oz troy. Mid 19th century. Note: a common form in French silver, taste-vins are almost unknown in American silver; this piece may reflect the French-born silversmith's roots or been imported for a Franco-American clientele. Provenance: the collection of John Montague, Memphis, Tenn. CONDITION: Overall good condition with several scattered small dents.
