A most attractive and rare shaped Antique Sterling Silver Sugar Sifter with lovely proportions and in superb antique collector's condition. This sifter is an elegant polished silver with attractive piercings to the unusual squared bowl. The curved handle ends in a split as it attaches to the beautifully pierced bowl. Marked with a sterling mark of a head in a circle, unfortunately I could not locate the maker by the hallmark after extensive research.

This collectable beauty dates to the early 1800's, there is some wear to the bottom inside of the spoon bowl, please see the photos. This piece was used and loved by the family, I bought it from a family estate in Europe, it appears to have been repaired at one point long ago, the handle was re-attached with silver. It's such a large size and rare shape that I forgave it that, it's perfectly imperfect. {I can only image the horror of the person who "sifted" a little too hard and had to have it repaired!!}

  • Measures 6-1/2" x 3" x 2-1/4".
