Hello,  The 18th century walnut English tea table holds several possibilities for this holiday’s gift giving. Please click on the attached images for detailed views.

A pair of English Sheffield plated wine coasters with typical seamed construction, cross reeded rims, and central silvered bosses. Mahogany bottoms. Circa 1800-30’s.

A highly unusual pair of reticulated wine coasters with reeded handles and vine rims with leafage and grapes. These are Sheffield plated, from the early to mid 19thcentury. These are a handsome pair for the sideboard.

The German Deco cigarette case is sterling. The heavy case is engraved to looked faintly striped and has beveled sides. The interior has a spring loaded retainer with piercing. Perhaps we don’t smoke, but what a tasteful way to carry the license and credit cards. 4 ½” X 3 ¼” .

Also, we had started with the Georgian tea table and now can mention further the well carved tray edge top and the shaped apron below a cockbeaded drawer. Restored. L. 33”, D. 21”, H. 28 ½”.

We are eager to hear of your specific antique needs.

Best regards and thanks

-Bob
