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. Old French sterling silver, this one is rather small and weighs 71 grams. Some light surface scuffing and a bit of darkening in spots/areas.
A tiny dimple or two possible but no larger dents, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for weight and measurements. We're easy to deal with.
