A very pretty antique silver bottle stand with pierced silver border, bead edge and turned hardwood centre. Small size. Simple classical design with bands of bright cut prick dot engraving and flower cut outs. To the front there a simple cartouche – uninscribed. Height 3.5 cms. Diameter 10.5 cms. Sterling silver. London 1781. Makers mark rubbed.
This elegant sterling silver wine coaster is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The engraved decoration is still crisp. The silver marks are stamped on the edge of the base; the date, lion and assay marks are clear but the makers mark is only partly struck.
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.
