A very, handsome, Regency style antique Georgian sterling silver Wine Bottle Table Coaster, featuring a round bellied body and gadroon pattern with a neat protruding border to the top. The base is oak turned with a central silver button. Hallmarks are visible on one side for the Sheffield Assay Office with a date mark for 1803 and silver maker's mark: Nathaniel Smith & Co (this maker's mark is slightly rubbed, however, still distinguishable).
