This is a sweet Sterling Tea Strainer. It has no dings or scratches. It is 4 3/4" long with a 2 1/2" bowl. It is Hallmarked from the Blackinton MFC Co. They originated in 1860 in Massachusetts and continued to make Sterling pieces until 1960.
This would be a wonderful family heirloom or a great Holiday present. The Tea strainer is very substantial at 25.7 grams in weight.
