Silver Wine Coasters

Antique wine or bottle coasters were first produced around 1770 as a way to protect the table.  Both sterling and silver plate were available.  They were originally sold in pairs — one for each end of the dining table.

In the 19th century different styles emerged.  Some coasters had wood bases, and others were made with porcelain ones.
