9804 A Large and Attractive Silver Coaster


Click on the images to see more detail

A silver coaster made in Sheffield in 1807 by John Roberts and Co. While the top and base mouldings are solidly cast gadrooning, the broad band of fruiting vine are die-stamped from sheet silver. This would have represented a considerable cost saving compared with the cast coasters of comparable appearance made in London at the same time.

The coaster is in excellent condition with the detail sharp and crisp.

Date: 1807
