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 elegant sterling silver wine coasters are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The engraved decoration is still crisp. The silver marks are stamped on the edge of the base and are rubbed - the date, lion and assay marks can be made out, the makers mark is illegible. 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
