Exceptional and large Sterling Silver Tea Strainer, made between 1888 ~ 1896 by Davis & Galt. One of the prettiest and most decorative sterling tea strainers I have ever seen, this is luxury quality for your tea time! Large enough to fit over your whole antique porcelain tea cup, the fine sterling strainer has a wide repousse band beautifully decorated with a floral garland. Flowers, including our favorite roses, are joined with French scrollwork and leaves in a stunning design.
The 19th century handle is dark wood, fully marked with the Davis & Galt Fleur de Lis cartouche and STERLING. A treasure to add to your tea table, or to gift to a host or hostess you love who has a silver or tea related collection. Measures 9" long, bowl:4~1/4".
