Designed to hang from a teapot, this 2" diameter, 1 1/4" high, .7 T. oz. all silver, basket style tea (leaf) strainer has a wire prong that fits in the pot spout, and which is also attached to a pivoting wire bail.

It is marked "Sterling" on the wire, and "Sterling," model number "24," and "lion, anchor, G" for Gorham on the basket.

Markedly Aesthetic in style, the pierced basket is folded or crimped and is irregularly impressed with a fern or seaweed like organic design. This is reminiscent of the surface of Gorham's exotic "Hamburg" pattern dating 1880, which is a reasonable estimate for the date of this.

Complete with its original wires, this remains in flawless condition, free of dents, bends, or breaks in the metal.
