Product Description

Circa 1830, a late George IV mahogany circular wine coaster most likely by Mein of Kelso. The solid mahogany piece has a large circular flange top with ogee moulding. It has a simple moulding on the inside of the top. The underside of the coaster continues down to a large circular flange which is raised and inside of this there are a few classic features of this kind of piece: brass castors and leather wheels. The leather wheels were used to push along the dining table to prevent it from leaving any markings on a table or other surfaces. There is a burn mark in the centre where the piece has been laid. It’s an unusual piece of late Georgian furniture, and is very stylish.

Size 6cm high x 25cm diameter.
