This is a nice pair of vintage strainers. They are gray/grey agateware, also referred to as enamelware and graniteware. They have flat bottoms. They are both gray with lighter gray mottling. One strainer has more mottling than the other. Each strainer has four sets of double holes for hanging. Strung together and hung these strainers could be used for holding, fruits, vegetables, drying herbs, flowers or anything you wish to have handy.
These lovely strainers could be used in many decorating themes. They work well with a rustic, country, primitive or farmhouse decor. They would even look well in a monochromatic setting.
They measure approximately 10 3/4” in diameter and are 2 1/4” deep.
They date to the early part of the 1900’s.
They were everyday utilitarian items and they show their age and history. They both have some enamel loss on the top, inside and on the bottom.
