A very pretty pair of antique sterling silver wine coasters with pierced gallery and turned hardwood centres. Typical 18th century classical design. The borders having bright cut engraving with swags and an oval medallion to the front.
Height 3.3cm. Diameter 12cm.
Maker’s mark rubbed.
Marks. Both are stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks to the edge of the base with consecutive date marks for 1787/8. The maker’s mark is rubbed.
Literature: Wine coasters were not made until the 1760’s when they were produced from pierced sheet similar to the cake baskets of that date. They were usually made in pairs, sometimes fours, but it is rare to find an antique set longer than four.
The silver hallmarks were often stamped on the edge of the base and as a result the marks can sometimes be difficult to read, either because they were badly struck or because, over the years, they have become rubbed.
In good condition. Sharp engraving. Underneath, the edge of the base is slightly uneven.
