Object 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.

Object Condition

These elegant silver wine coasters are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The decoration is still crisp. The silver marks are stamped around the edge of the base and clear and matching.

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.
