A very fine pair of George III Wine Coasters made in London in 1785 by Robert Hennell.

The Wine Coasters are circular in form with wavy rims decorated with a beaded band. The sides are pierced with an upper band of vitruvian scroll work, in addition to flower heads in roundels. The sides are also engraved with pretty floral garlands and a contemporary Crest issuing from the coronet of a Duke, all contained within a circular prick dot cartouche. The Coasters have their original fruitwood turned bases and are very well marked. They also bear the rare incuse Duty Mark which was only seen in 1784 and 1785, this is where the King's Head Duty mark is contained within a cut cornered "incuse" punch.

Diameter: 4.75 inches, 11.88cm.
Height: 1.6 inches, 4cm.
