"Timbale" is the French term for the stemless metal goblet or tumbler used for wine, (in our case, sterling silver). The noun feminine for it is tasse, which is more like a typical cup with handle.
Demi-tasse is a half or small cup. In their time, these were used for wine at the table. Some speculate this form of drinking goblet is that after which the English term for'thimble' evolved, the form or shape being that of the thimble for sewing. The goblet predates the sewing thimble, however.
A long history is France, these are much sought after and bring a surprising price as many collect this particularly French wine goblet. This one weighs a relatively heavy 91 grams, solid silver though 80% so just under the. 925 standard for "sterling" silver.
Some light surface scuffing possible and it appears there are one or two small dings to the base edge. See pictures for weight and measurements.
