Fine Georgian English Sterling Silver Lemon/Fruit Strainer, c.1739-55

Offered is a very good early 18th Century English sterling silver fruit strainer, sometimes also called a lemon strainer, fully hallmarked for London. The hallmarks are rubbed, but based upon the shape of the punch for the lion passant and the shape of the leopard's head, the date range of 1739-55 or so seems the most likely candidate. This is an excellent example of a scarce form, with lovely hand-piercing and unusually fine cast handles. One handle has a scratch weight engraved on the... Click for details

Offered is a fine early set of 18th Century American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Daniel Dupuy Sr. (b. 1719 - d. 1807).
