Commentaires : Wine was usually poured at the sideboard and brought to the table on salvers (trays). Wine coasters were usually brought in after the main meal and dessert were finished, after the tablecloth was removed, and after the women had withdrawn to drink tea. Decanters filled with wine would then be placed on the coaster and passed amongst the men.

The use of crystal decanters and the practice of removing the tablecloth for dessert led to the use of coasters to protect the table. They were first made during the reign of George I, but were not produced in great quantities until the early 19th century. Most were made in pairs or sets of 4, 6 or 8. Serving the same function as wine coasters but differing in form were decanter stands or wine wagons, which resembled small carts on wheels.
