Traditional leather wheel prevents scratching polished surfaces and runs quietly on a wooden floor.
* Historical note: One original use may have been for a cheese coaster containing a complete round cheese which would have been wheeled along a dining table from person to person. Additionally, some light delicate Pembroke and Sutherland tables are mounted on leather wheeled castors.
