Medium-sized silver tastevin with a completely smooth body. The bottom is flat with a coin showing the inscription: “à la memoire du glorieux combat du peuple français contre la tyrannie aux Tuileries. La Commune de Paris”. The handle, with the form of a snake, is finely engraved with the inscription “CLERMONT FD”, the probable provenience. The coin on the bottom was created for Sir Benjamin Duvivier in 1793 in more than one copy. Many of these coins were offered to members of the general council of the municipality. Interesting documents prove that the hallmarks of the town hall have been used in the revolutionary period in Clermont Ferrand.
Provenience Paris, France.
Hallmark “E A”, the silvermaster Etienne Alleyrat, 1731.
Hallmark unreadable, maybe “crowned O”
