Wining at the Table


English Oak Wine Coaster with Pierced and Silver-Plated Gallery (LEO Design)


For many, Heaven-on-Earth is a nice glass of wine at dinnertime.  Some people wait all day for this moment!  But that ring of red on the tablecloth (or, worse, on the woodwork) can really take the sheen off a wonderful meal.  While any coaster (or paper towel) will do, why not up-your-game?  This handsome English wine coaster is ready-for-action.  A slab of English oak, enhanced with turned, concentric rings, is surrounded by a pierced and silver-plated brass "gallery."  It was made in England between the wars.  Elegant and useful, this wine coaster will provide style and protection the next time you pop a cork.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
