A good French silver wine taster with both linear and circular indentations to enable the tasting of both white and red wines. The 950 standard Minerva mark is stamped on the both the dish and the handle and there is also a maker's mark stamped to the handle. A previous owner "F. DUFOUR" had their name engraved on the side. 

It measures 8cm (3 1/8") across the rim, 10.5cm (4 1/8") rim to handle and 3.3cm (1 1/4") high to the thumb rest. It weighs 86g / 2.8ozt. 

In very good condition with no damage or repair. Very fractional distortion of the rim and a couple of very minor brusies to the larger circular indentations.
