Hello to you all,

This silvered bottle holder? is marked with the name BUSCHMANN & Co in the bottom,I can't find nothing about this person but I think it is a German silver plate factory. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Of course I'm interested about the period they made this one, I will be glad to know that.

My guess is that the period can be around 1920, I recognize about the same ornamental decoration in a German Zaft I have shown before.

It is always good to learn what the background is from a silver/ed object, there I hope somebody can give information about this one.

The totally wide is 10.25 inch. So honestly thought I doubt if it is a bottle holder, there is also a round space in the bottom.(?).

Some photo's showing the subject.

Thank you very much, silver/ed hunter

I cannot help with the maker, but you are right that this is not a bottle holder, or coaster as we call them here. Not only is it too big. A coaster normally has a flat wooden base with felt on the bottom so that it can slide on the table without causing damage. I think your piece will originally have had its own glass liner (a bowl fitted within the rim) and could have been used for anything a bowl might be used for.

Thank you Agphile for your reaction, they placed a round mirror at the bottom in the shop so that isn't the original purpose.

When I'm honest I seems to be that someone took of one of one of his rims of his car and was artistic with making a silvered object of it. Now serious of course, I now know that there belongs a glass bowl inside it has to be a server object for the table.

This week I found a other kind of silvered server object but with the glass inside it's made around 1900 and I try to buy the one but I'm not sure they still offer this one. It's silver plated but I like the pattern, I don't mean to start another topic inside this one, only wants to show the pattern.(thinking about the same glass which would be nicer of course!).

Thank you for your the good explain, considering my question.
Greetings Silverhunter/andre. Your topic reactions are continue, I think.

Dognose spoons looks like pigspoons, you right about that, but they start making dog spoons earlier.

Success at your side and enjoy the hobby.
