Description


This exceptional antique George III sterling silver wine coaster has a cylindrical form with a rounded base.


The body of this impressive silver coaster is embellished with pierced vertical pales accented with conjoined circular motifs to the upper portion.

The ornamentation to the body is flanked with pinstruck and wriggle work decoration, incorporating a simplified alternating leaf motif to the incurve of each pierced pale.


The flared upper rim is ornamented with an applied reed decorated border.


This antique silver wine coaster is fitted with the original turned mahogany wood base and features green baize to the underside.


This exceptional coaster was crafted by the renowned London silversmith Robert Hennell I.

Condition


This antique silver wine coaster is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

There is a slight opening to the original wood base; this does not affect the integrity of the piece.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim are very clear; the nature of the coaster 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 the hallmarks remain very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
