This most attractive pair date from about 1875. They have
pierced Cylindrical bodies with gadrooned bands to the top
and base. They are in good original condition with no damage.
Most of the Silver plate has worn off due to over 130 years of
cleaning by servants. Personally I love the Copper shining through
the Silver, infact I have a similar pair myself. They really are full
over character and would benefit from a good polish.

A pair of very early English wine coasters that are silver over copper, most certainly Old Sheffield, dating to circa 1820. Much of the silver has worn off and the warm copper is showing through. We have not polished or cleaned these at all. They have their share of dents and bends, but they have oh-so-much character! A nice, historic pair of coasters with lots of life still in them!
Silver plated over copper wine bottle coaster that was probably a prize or memento for a polo match back in 1964. It measures almost 4.5 inches in diameter and is marked "made in England". It also has a maker's mark that we don't recognize. A great gift for a polo fan that enjoys wine!
