19th century Inlaid Mahogany Coaster

Price: SOLD
Ref: 10320

A fine quality, 19th century table coaster turned from solid mahogany of lovely colour and figure.  The small tray or `slider` is with a raised rim ornamented with an astragal beading and is further enhanced by an inlaid central `round fan` patera of contrasting boxwood, sand-scorched to create a three dimensional effect.  The underside retains the original green baize lining.  Such pieces were used on the dining table to circulate bottles and decanters or as a useful tray for calling cards.  An attractive and still practical piece remaining in well used but good original condition, showing some marks commensurate with age and use.  Circa 1830-50.

H: 2cm (0.8")   W: 20cm (7.9")
