What is this Royal Caribbean trinket?

When you went to their wine tasting this is what they poured your sample wine in for you to drink. 

 

Good job Sue! Now that you mention it, I remember the sommeliers used to wear them on a chain for wine sampling.  I'm glad you remembered, all I could think was muffin tin or giant butter press. :classic_smile:

Have not seen one of those recently, a couple of years ago the sommelier in Celebrity Luminae asked if he could taste the wine which we brought, he used one of those, at least he didn’t charge us the corkage, but many times they didn’t.

We found this trinket in my father-in-law's house when he passed away.   It has a Royal Caribbean Cruise Line stamp/marking on it.  Has anyone seen this before?  What is it?  

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

A tastevin used (formerly) by wine makers to check and taste wine in their cellars. The shallow, shiny cup would allow them to see the color and clarity of the wines. Sommeliers started to use them to taste a bottle of wine before presenting to the customer.
