Pair Antique Silver Plated & Hard Wood Bottle/Decanter Coasters in Magnum Size (Code 9046)
DescriptionA pair of mid 19th century Victorian period bottle coasters. They are silver plated over copper and have vine and grape detail around the rims. The bodies have floral designs with leaves and a ribbed band above. They are set with hardwood bases and have green felt to the undersides. The only mark found is an impressed cross key stamp typically used by Sheffield makers, but there are no identifying initials etc.
These coasters are of larger than usual size, and should generally fit magnum sized bottles and larger decanters. The opening is 13cm, and base plate width is 12cm - please check these dimensions are suitable for your bottles/decanters if required to fit specific pieces.
Generally good for period. Some copper is showing through the plating, mostly at the high points which is as you would expect for normal use and cleaning. There are some surface scratches and wear in keeping with period. Wood is pretty good with minor aging. Felt to underside is somewhat worn, and clearly quite old but with no holes or tears.
Height 7.5 cms (3 inches)
Width 21.5 cms (8.5 inches)
Weight 946 grams (before packing)
