Date: 1843

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

The surface of one base has a partial crack, this does not affect the ingreity of the piece.

The applied decoration is all very sharp and the engraved decoration is all very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each coaster are 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, the hallmarks show signs of wear in keeping with age but remain legible.

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