A very pretty pair of antique silver bottle stands with pierced silver borders and turned hardwood centres. Simple classical design with a pierced ribbon of engraved harebells and to the front a vacant leaf cartouche, uninscribed. Height 4 cms. Diameter 12.5 cms. Sterling silver. London 1795. Makers Henry Chawner.
These elegant sterling silver wine coasters are 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 and are both readable. The maker's marks on one coaster is not visible. These coasters are hand made and there will be some slight differences in the engraving and the width of the piercing.

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.
