9934 A Fine Pair of Rosewood Coasters


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a fine pair of treen (wooden) coasters in excellent condition and with a delightful patination.  They enjoy a fine tactile quality and they are the right size for a pair of Georgian decanters - so very practical, too.

They were made about 1820, and the turnery is in crisp condition showing very few dinks or bruises; this is because the East Indian Rosewood used is very hard and dense.  The inside bases have concentric ring turning and the undersides are baize-lined.

Treen coasters are becoming difficult to find, so much so that today, they are almost rare.

Date: c.1820

Dimensions: 4.9" , 12.6cm int. diameter, 6.2" 15.6 cm ext. diameter
