A most unusual sterling silver oblong taste vin having a spouted bowl with a 1757 George II sixpence coin inset and a reverse C scroll cast handle.

The edge of the bowl has an embossed Altin inscription, partially obscured by the spout, which translates: and protection in the twenty-fourth year of the rule. The bowl sits on a conforming base, with the piece weighing 45 grams or 1.4 ozs. Troy and being 3 7/8" long, spout to handle, 2 1/4" wide and 1" tall.
