A very fine and rare pair of antique silver George III wine coasters belonging to Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Secker (1693 – 1768).

These superb coasters are in the “Chinese Chippendale” style and still retain their original woods. They have a shaped gadroon border and inset in the lattice work decoration is a cartouche containing a finely engraved Archbishop’s mitre.

They are about as early as one would find a pair of wine coasters and are in wonderful condition throughout.

We owned these coasters nearly 30 years ago and are delighted to be offering them for sale again.

Dimensions: 11.7 x 4.8 cm

Thomas Secker was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1758 until his death in 1768.

Samuel Herbert & Co

First mark entered as largeworker in October 1747 at Aldersgate Street. Second mark – with an unnamed partner – as Samuel Herbert & Co in November, 1750. His workshops by then were in Foster Lane.

A fine maker who specialised in hand pierced work notably on wine coasters, baskets and mustard pots.
