The F. M. Whiting & Co. was founded in 1878 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, by the son of William Whiting, founder of Whiting Manufacturing Co. In 1896 the name was changed to Frank M. Whiting & Company and continued manufacturing under that name until it as acquired by the Elllmore Silver Co. in 1940.

This wonderful sterling tea strainer, circa 1900, has a simple bowl shape with twisted wire handles on each side. The bowl is decorated with an ornate punched design consisting of a central six-point star, shamrocks, darts, keyholes, circles and lines. The strainer is stamped with the Whiting Logo, "Sterling - 30" and weighs .795 ounce. It measures 2 3/8" across the strainer bowl and 4 3/8" from handle-to-handle. The condition is excellent with light patina on the bowl and darker on the handles.
