STUNNING GERMAN SOLID SILVER & RICHLY GILT 'SPOUT HANGING' TEA STRAINER ON STAND

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A WONDERFUL, GERMAN SOLID SILVER & GILT 'SPOUT HANGING' TEA STRAINER COMPLETE WITH CIRCULAR STAND.

THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE FEATURES A FULL SET OF HALLMARKS TO THE INSIDE OF THE PIERCED BOWL & IS A REAL STUNNER.

DECORATED WITH A FINE 'BEAD' PATTERN BORDER TO THE TOP RIM, AND FEATURING A VERY RICHLY 'GOLD WASHED' OR 'GILT' PIERCED BOWL, THAT IS SPLIT INTO 8 SEGMENTS. TRULY BEAUTIFUL.

FITTED WITH A FINE 'YOKE' SHAPED SWING HANDLE, AND THE 'PINCER' ENDS ARE FLEXIBLE SO AS TO ALLOW FOR SLIDING INTO THE SPOUT OF A TEAPOT BEFORE POURING & ONCE INSERTED THESE WILL 'GRIP' & HOLD THE STRAINER IN PLACE.

{PLEASE SEE PHOTOS OF IT FITTED TO A SPOUT, ALTHOUGH IM AFRAID THE 'SPOUT' IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS sale AS IT IS ATTACHED TO A FINE POT THAT I WILL BE SELLING AT A LATER DATE. SORRY}.

THIS WOULD ALLOW IT TO EASILY CATCH ALL OF THE LOOSE LEAVES & STOP THEM FROM GOING INTO YOUR CUPPA, HOW WONDERFUL. AND INDEED A VERY RARE ITEM, AND VERY DIFFERENT TO MOST ANTIQUE TEA STRAINERS.

IT SITS PERFECTLY UPON THE CIRCULAR STRAINER STAND, HOWEVER THIS IS AN ELECTRO PLATED ONE & SADLY NOT SILVER. BUT I HAVE NOT USED THE STANDS WEIGHT IN THE DESCRIPTION, ONLY THE SOLID SILVER WEIGHT.

IF YOU DONT WANT THE STAND THEN THATS FINE, BUT IT DOES SIT PERFECTLY & DISPLAY VERY WELL UPON IT.

CONDITION :

BOTH PIECES ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO DAMAGE OR REPAIRS AT ALL.

THE SOLID SILVER STRAINER IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL, WITH MAGNIFICIENT GILDING TO THE SEGMENTED BOWL.

THERE IS SOME VERY SLIGHT SURFACE WEAR TO THE STAND, AND ONE OF THE 3 X BALL FEET IS SLIGHTLY LOOSE, BUT HELPS TO DISPLAY THE STRAINER PERFECTLY.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

STRAINER MEASURES 6.5 CMIN DIAMETER & IS 2.5 CM DEEP.

STAND IS 8.5 CM DIAMETER AT THE BASE & IS 4.5 CM TALL.

WEIGHT OF JUST THE SOLID SILVER STRAINER = 16.6 GRAMS / 0.53 TROY OZ.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

STRAINER IS STAMPED INSIDE THE BOWL WITH :

  • HALF CRESENT MOON & CROWN - ASSAY MARK FOR GERMAN SILVER
  • '800' - THIS IS FOR SILVER GRADE, SO IS 800/1000
  • A GOTHIC 'D' ? - SADLY I AM UNSURE AS IT IS SMALL & VERY DIFFICULT TO READ PROPERLY, BUT WILL BE THE MAKERS MARK / INITIALS

THE STAND IS STAMPED :

  • ' EPNS ' - MARK FOR ELECTRO PLATED NICKEL SILVER

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY SEE WHAT STUNNING LITTLE SET THIS IS.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT. A FINE ANTIQUE GERMAN SOLID SILVER & GILT TEA STRAINER, IN LOVELY CONDITION, AND COMPLETE WITH STAND. THIS WOULD PLEASE ANY ANTIQUE / SILVER COLLECTOR.
