Code: 6592


£55.00

This Sheffield plated wine coaster dates from c.1820 and is in very good condition with very little copper showing through the silver.  It has a boldly gadrooned rim and the beechwood base is turned with a central 'button' on which a crest or initials could have been engraved.  Although not easy to see, there is a seam which confirms that this is a Sheffield plated coaster - not an electroplated one.

Max diameter 6.7", 17 cm.. internal diameter 4.5", 11.4 cm.
