Unknown tea strainer?

Postby hpidaves » Sun Dec 22, 2019 5:54 pm

I have what I believe is a British sterling 5-5/8" tea strainer, but am not sure of the piece type. The 4 hallmarks are very worn, but I believe the last one shows the 3 legs of the lion passant. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know if this helps much but based on the shape of the hallmarks, especially the wavy shield of the lion passant, the item might be dated to the period 1896-1915: https://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Dat ... -1915.html
You could probably try to identify the maker's mark by browsing the lists and trying to find one with the peculiar shape of the shield and matching time period.

Thank you so much! I found the maker -- George Jackson & David Fullerton, 1897:

I was looking at the mark in the wrong direction -- sideways.

Thanks again!
