Antique French Sterling Silver Tea Strainer, CA.1880
This is quite a wonderful and elaborate antique French Sterling (.950 silver) Tea Strainer, in its original grey and silk lined presentation box !!
Modeled in a Rococco design, with the handle featuring a Dolphin Spewing Water, with a shell work background. The Bowl retains its Gilt interior, and the exterior detail has engraved Leaves, Flowers and Elaborate Scrolls.
All Hand made and in excellent condition, produced CA.1880's. I don't think this Tea Strainer was used very much, if at all!
The box is labeled by the maker -" Robert DeGeresme Silversmith-Jeweler, 18 Rue St.Sulpice,Paris".
A unique Silver Tea Strainer for your next High Tea !!
