retailed by Palmer and Newcomb, length overall 23 1/2 inches, each coaster eight inches in diameter, gross weight 47 Troy ounces, engraved with and old English "m" and the crest of the Muir family (please see fourth photo). Overall condition is superb, though we will mention that the wooden inserts are later made but period accurate replacements.

Though we won't be so bold as to claim that it is unique, American silver wine trolleys from the mid 19th century are most certainly scarce...
