An antique sterling silver strainer of circular form with a single shaped handle and side clip. A very charming and useful size; although originally made as a lemon strainer this could be used nowadays as a tea strainer. The bowl is pierced with a flower design. To the front is a quirky little hand engraved crest.
Weight 72 grams, 2.3 troy oz.
Spread 14.4cm. Diameter 9.9cm.
Maker Burrage and Davenport.
Marks. Stamped to the centre of the bowl with a full set of English silver hallmarks. The maker’s mark is badly stamped but looks to be Burrage and Davenport.
Maker: Burrage Davenport
Burrage Davenport, London silversmith, no record of apprenticeship or freedom. His name appears as plateworker in the Parl. Report List of 1773. The mark long attributed to him must presumably have been registered during the period of the missing largeworkers’ volume.
