Arts and Crafts large Silver Strainer hand made by Amy Sandheim 130 Nottinghill Gate London 1938 . She was the daughter of Amy Alice and Julius Wolfe Sandheim. Julius came from a family of watchmakers, Amy primarily is known for her artisitic and peasant Art Nouveau jewellery so this large piece of silver is most unusual for her.
She was prominent in the second wave of inter-war Arts & Crafts and Art Deco jewellery designers, that included Sibyl Dunlop and Dorrie Nossiter, and apparently the three women were friends. Amy and Dorrie did not sign their work, which is often mis-attributed to Sibyl Dunlop, the best known of the three.
