Small cupel for metal refining, Spanish colonial (1600s), rare. 15 grams, 1-3/4" tall, 1-1/4" in diameter. It is probably very rare to find intact one of these delicate tools of the metalsmith trade, a tiny round-bottom pitcher with spout, due to the rather thin material from which it was made (which can nevertheless withstand high heat!), crack down one side but otherwise stable and intact.
