A classic pair of antique sterling silver wine bottle stands with elegant plain styling. Turned hardwood bases. Uninscribed. Diameter 12 cms. Height 3.5 cms. London 1789. Maker Henry Chawner.
These charming silver bottle coasters are in very good condition with no damage or repairs. Both are 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.
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.
