The Wine Coasters are identical in form and are of a most unusual design. They have a circular form with deep sides and everted rim decorated with gadrooning. The sides are beautifully pierced and engraved with Neo Gothic arch work, as well as panels of pluming scrolls and flower heads. The sides are also engraved with prick dot bands. Both coasters have turned boxwood bases, which are centred with a silver boss engraved with a shield shaped Armorial. The Armorials are those of Newton quartering Leaper. John Leaper Esq of Derby, born 1754, succeeded his kinsman Robert Newton of Mickleover and Norton, co.Derby in 1789. On succeeding, he adopted the Newton arms and the family name became Leaper-Newton. The Newton's were a substantial old gentry family and, as usual, filled the offices of High Sheriff and magistrate of the county, as did their successors the Leaper-Newtons. The difference in the dates of the coasters is simply where the set was extended by Robert & Samuel Hennell.

Height: 1.9 inches, 4.75cm.
