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.
These silver coasters are in very good condition. Each has a full set of English hall marks, clear and matching, stamped on the wires. Original turned hard wood bases (one has a split ). Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
