Antique Georgian Mahogany Cheese Coaster

Antique Georgian Mahogany Cheese Coaster (England c. 1800)

A Delightful George III Period Mahogany Boat
Shaped Cheese Coaster Having Superbly Figured
Top With Turned Ends And Applied Roundel Decoration

( Cheese coasters, as the name suggests, were originally
made to present the cheese at the end of a meal and be
easily passed backwards and forwards up and down what
were often very long dining tables. These days of course if
they are not to be used for their original purpose then there
is a plethora of functions which they can perform, including
but not limited to fruit bowls, somewhere to gather keys and
nik naks on top of a hall table and a vessel for pot pouri
or similar.

This is an unusual example in terms of not having the usual
division down the middle and being slightly larger. It has an
importance to it and is constructed from exceptional quality
mahogany with beautifully carved roundel decoration. It was
clearly made in a good workshop by an extremely skilled
craftsman and is one of the best examples of its type that
we have handled)
