A classical style antique sterling silver coaster with pierced silver gallery, bright cut borders and turned hardwood centre. Excellent quality. There are cut out medallions to the sides, a pretty hand engraved frieze of flowers and leaves, and a squirrel crest to the front. Height 3.8 cms. Diameter 12 cms. London 1787. Maker Robert Hennell.
This pretty wine coaster is in very good condition with no damage or repairs to the borders. The engraving is still crisp. The wooden base is in good condition with a little minor staining. Fully stamped on the edge of the base; the marks are a little worn but can be made out clearly.

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.
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.
