Lot of 2 Great Britain shillings (Anne 1709 and George II 1758) mounted inside the bowls of 2 silver tastevins (wine-testers) with whale-baleen handles. Each 14" long, the bowls about 2-1/4" in diameter and depths of 7/8" and 1-1/4". The coin details are F-VF but of course they are both heavily polished to match the silver bowls (one ornate, the other plain but with script initials JHC on outside), the dark-brown handles twisted and tipped with silver caps, intact and interesting.
