This silver tasting bowl was made in 1707 by the Delft silversmith Adriaen Joosten Brandt.
A tasting bowl is a tool for wine-tasting. In earlier times it was used by winemakers to control and taste the wine at different stages of the production process. By pouring wine into the bowl and "rolling" it, oxygen was added to the wine, which made the aroma of the wine smell better. Finally, the wine was tasted from the bowl.
