Mauser Sterling Arts & Crafts Tea Strainer, New York City, c. 1900
The Mauser company was from New York and made very high quality silver. This large and beautiful sterling tea strainer is in the arts & crafts style with its hammered handle and applied strap and studs around the bowl. The piercing in the bowl is a very pretty design of various scrolls, lines and stars. This piece measures just under 9 inches long by 4.75 inches wide and is in great condition. This is one of the nicest we have ever seen.
