Description


These exceptional antique William IV sterling silver coasters have a circular rounded waisted form.


The flared upper rim of each coaster is ornamented with a fine applied gadroon decorated border accented with six impressive incurved scrolling leaf designs.


The coasters are fitted with fine and impressive turned pear wood bases, embellished with an impressive silver button style cartouche to the centre of each.


Each cartouche is ornamented with an impressive bright cut engraved crest depicting a stag sejant.


These coasters are fitted with green baize to the underside.


This pair of coasters were crafted by the revered and renowned, collectable Birmingham silversmith Matthew Boulton; sterling silver items by this maker are becoming increasingly scarce.


Date: 1831

Condition


These antique coasters are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The applied decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface are all very clear; the nature of these coasters dictates the location of the hallmarks to the rim of the base. In many extant coasters, because of this, the hallmarks may become very worn and illegible. In this instance however, due to the gauge of silver and quality of each piece, the hallmarks have been deeply struck and are very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique silverware.
