Date: 1812

Condition


These antique Georgian silver wine coasters are an exceptional gauge of silver and exceptional quality for their type.

Each coaster is in exceptional condition, in keeping with age.

The applied and embossed decoration is very sharp and the engraved heraldic markings are very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of each coaster 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 these pieces of Georgian silverware.
