ENGLISH STERLING SILVER GEORGIAN WINE BOTTLE COASTER. MADE BY ROBERT & DAVID HENNELL 1797. Pleased to offer this wonderful example of a Georgian sterling wine bottle coaster made by the well regarded Hennell family of silversmiths.Of classic Georgian style with a solid circular wall with a stepped sloped base. Bright cut engraved by hand with bands of tiny dots, alternating with circles and florettes. Center oval cartouche displays a lion passant within a wreath. Bright cut work is sharp and clear! The center wooden platform is original, and distressed from a couple of centuries of use. There is a naturally formed crack within the platform due to moisture that was not removed after use.
