Description and Details
This wonderful solid silver wine coaster was made by silversmith James Dixon & Sons Ltd in Sheffield, 1901.
The coaster features a magnificent chased motif throughout its walls with a thick and high-relief design of grapes and vine leaves, very much suiting its intended use with wine.
The rim features a gadrooned and flared shape which leads to a widened body and steady base. The centre of the coaster is fitted with a wooden base - the blue pad on the bottom appears to have been replaced with a new one, ideal for hygienic practical usage today (the pads would often get rotten due to the age and exposure it had to liquids).
The wide base and body allow for an array of different bottles to be held within the coaster - featuring a rather large size, it will take all wine and champagne bottle with no issues.
The coaster is fully hallmarked clearly with English marks on the side and centre.
A sensational way to enjoy a bottle of wine together with your meal or as a display within other silverware as fine interior decor.
