An elegant pair of antique silver bottle stand with pierced silver borders and turned hardwood centres. Typical of the work by this sought after English lady silversmith the coaster has a simple classical design with a vertically pierced gallery and hand engraved crest to the front. Height 4 cms. Diameter 12 cms. Sterling silver. London 1778. Maker Hester Bateman.
This charming pair of sterling silver wine coasters are in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. The engraved crests are still crisp. The silver marks are stamped on the edge of the base and, for this reason, are not clearly stamped but are still 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.
