We are offering for sale a lovely little sterling tea strainer by Frank M Whiting Silver Company. The markings on the strainer show a W inside a circle and three radiating lines on either side, with the pattern number 5005. The strainer has a wonderful art deco style handle and a lovely scalloped, crimped edging. I believe the strainer to be from the early 1900's. It weighs 3/4 oz. and is 5 1/4" x 2 1/2". In excellent condition. A delightful gift for any tea lover.
