Object Description

A classic antique sterling silver wine bottle stand with elegant plain styling. Turned hardwood base. Uninscribed. Diameter 12.2 cm. Height 3.5 cms. London 1814. Maker’s mark 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.

Object Condition

The silver bottle coaster is in very good condition with no damage. Stamped around the bottom edge with a full set of matching English silver hallmarks; there is some wear as is often the base when they are marked in this position, however they are very readable. Makers mark rubbed away.
