The Strainer has a circular bowl with raised rim decorated with gadrooning. This example unusually has two scroll sides handles, so that it can be placed over the top of a punch bowl. The handles are decorated with scrolls and Rococo shells and the bowl is pierced with roundels to simulate stylised flower heads. Strainers usually only have one handle, however to find one with two is scarce. This piece is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the reverse of the bowl and with the sterling mark on each of the handles. Samuel Herbert was a specialist pierced worker who made fine strainers and baskets.

Length: 10 inches, 25cm.
Diameter of the bowl: 4 inches, 10cm.
Weight: 6oz
