The decoration to the body of each piece incorporates a vacant shaped rectangular cartouche.


The undulating rim of each coaster is ornamented with an applied bead decorated border.


The coasters have impressive mahogany bases with a button inset to the centre of each; the mahogany has an aesthetically pleasing mellow appearance.


Each coaster is fitted with green baize to the underside.

Maker: Unknown
Date: 1779

Condition


These antique coasters are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The decoration to each piece is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each coaster are rubbed; the nature of the coasters dictates the location of the hallmarks, resulting in their shallow struck nature and subsequent wear, in keeping with age. In this instance the hallmarks remain legible under an eyeglass with exception of the maker and one date letter. These coasters have been priced accordingly.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Georgian silverware.
