The Coasters are circular in form with wavy, dipping, gadrooned rims.  The sides are beautifully pierced with bold scroll work, vertical pails, flower heads and, unusually, stylised tulips.  The front of each piece displays a circular cartouche, finely engraved with a detailed contemporary Armorial.  The Arms are those of the Kent family.  Each piece is fully marked in the piercing and have their original fruit wood bases, below a corded band.  Thomas Nash was a specialist pierced worker of fine quality, who specialised in the production of wine coasters and serving slices.  Wine Coasters were first introduced into England during the 1760's, therefore these represent fine early examples.  Both are very well marked and in excellent condition, with no damage to the piercing.

Height: 2.2 inches, 5.5 inches.
