This listing is for an extraordinary antique Chinese hand wrought open work repousse silver and carved jade tea strainer. This rare octagonal or 8 sided strainer depicts various water/sea creatures including a fish, sea snail, sea turtle, frog, crab, eel, etc. interspersed through renderings of water flora. The silver tip depicts a floral image which is carried through to the pierced jade handle with it's similar carvedfloral images.
The tea strainer measures 7 - 1/2 inches in length. The silver bowl measures 3 - 1/8 inches in diameter.
The piece is marked "CHINA SILVER" and is in very good antique condition. The jade piece is in excellent condition and can slide out of the silver for cleaning. The images to the silver strainer show little wear and have crisp details. There is a tiny 1/8 inch split to the back side of the silver where the silver and jade meet(see last image). This does not affect the jade fitting securely into the silver. The silver bowl may appear to have some discoloration towards the center, but it is reflecting the camera and surrounding area.
The tea strainer has been in my family well over 50 years. Please email with questions.
