Vintage Whiting sterling silver and crystal coaster. Coasters are marked "FRANK M WHITING & CO", "STERLING", '04", and "PAT PENDING". Center crystal star motif in bottom of coaster has raised rays. Silver inside rim enhanced with a beaded edge. Outside diameter is 3 3/4", an interior diameter of 2 3/4", and a depth of 1". Very good plus condition with minimal age appropriate wear to the silver. Crystal interiors are perfect - no chips, no cracks. (Dark areas on photos are reflections of the camera and the photographer, and are not on the silver.)
Frank M. Whiting & Company was founded in 1878 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. Circa 1940 the company was bought by the Ellmore Silver Company of Meriden, Connecticut. The Ellmore company continued to manufacture flatware until 1960 using both the Whiting name and some of the patterns.
