Victorian tea infuser ball / tea bag holders are few; ones of elaborately decorated floral sterling silver are quite scarce. This one by the Frank M Whiting Co. is in very good to excellent condition. The mark, with 2 griffins it bears was not used after the year 1896, it's floral and leaf raised image designs are ornate, pretty and done in beautiful Victorian styling. The flower petal design of the bowl on a stalk in the center has a hook on the under side as a catch/holder for either the chain of your metal / silver tea holder or the string from a tea bag, as well as, a tray underneath all for any drippings. It is 3 1/8 inches in diameter is 1 1/4 inches tall and weights approximately 35 grams. It has crisp detail work and elaborate silver floral workmanship on the tray with the large opening blossom appearance of the center holder for the tea ball or tea bag(s) making it a very lovely and gracious complement to any table setting for serving tea anytime.
