Antique E.G. Webster & Son Glass Coaster Set with Sterling Overlay c.1900 (2.4oz) (W)3in. x (L)3in. E.G. Webster opened his doors in 1860, and quickly gained traction as one of the leading Silversmiths in New York City who specialized in creating: quality, ornate, Pieces of Holloware, with a particular emphasis in producing boldly, beautiful, Barware. We see evidence of such in this intricately impressive, Sterling Overlay on Glass, Coaster Set. By 1886, E.G. Webster expanded his business by bringing in a new Partner to his thriving Silversmith firm, that Partner being his Son, and thus E.G. Webster & Son was established. Known for their impressive integrity & durable designs, E.G. Webster & Son cornered the market that enabled one to host and serve drinks (Cocktails) with elegance and class; while also preserving & protecting the Glass or Wooden surface that is often associated with a Bar or Dining Table. This particular E.G. Webster & Son Glass Coaster Set with Sterling Overlay is surely to garner the attention of many. With an approximate date of production set at or around the turn of the (20th) Century, Webster & Son employed many of the artistic influences commonly associated with the period. The Sterling Overlay is fashioned in such a manner that allows for one to appreciate the thick, Sterling's ornate characteristics; which resemble many Art Nouveau, Baroque Revival, inspired Pieces. The pattern is brightly illuminated by contrasts of light against the polished Sterling & patina. As noted, the Sterling Overlay is naturally affixed to a circular cut of tempered Glass. Each Glass Coaster is in great condition. Despite the Glass Coaster Set being (120+) years old, they've remained aesthetically pleasing & structurally intact. There are no chips or cracks to the Glass, nor is there any missing Sterling Overlay. Some superficial, age-related scuffing, is truly the only sign of usage. This is a quality Set of both Antique Glass & Sterling Silver, and should be recognized as such. A lovely Monogram is engraved in the Center of each Coaster, giving the Set a sense of authenticity and charm. The Antique E.G. Webster & Son Glass Coaster Set with Sterling Overlay is stored in a: dry, secured, environment, and will certainly make for a splendid addition to one's quality collection of Antique Glass & Sterling Barware.
