Antique Dutch 833 silver over cup tea strainer with pierced openwork repoussé border with scenic images of buildings and boats with birds and two cherubs on handle with moveable mechanical windmill. Marked with Lion 2 standard as shown in close-up images with an impressed letter C in the bowl as well as another Dutch silver mark in the shape of a sword on one of the windmills sails. Weighs a substantial 52.2 grams.
Nice old dark contrasting patina. Probably late 19th or early 20th century but could be earlier.
I like this Dutch silver tea strainer and think you will too. Overall good condition as described and photographed above with minor wear and imperfections from age and normal use........ Would benefit from light polishing which I have not attempted.......Otherwise in good decorative order and ready for display or to give as gift. Please examine all photos for size and measurement and see above condition report. Do not hesitate to request additional images or information. SterlingDon is at your Service!
