English Antique Sterling Silver Wine Coaster, Thomas Blagdin & Co, Sheffield - 1818/19
This lovely sterling coaster is made with good gauge silver and decorated with a wonderful classical design. A beautiful die-rolled border of shell and leaf with gadrooned edge decorates the flaring rim.
The original turned wood insert is inset with a silver blank engraved with a family crest of a goat's head rising from a coronet.
This lovely coaster is fully hallmarked around the outside edge. It measures 6.5 inches round by 1.75 inches high and is in very good antique condition with wear to the finish on the wood insert.
