Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver tea strainer has been realistically modelled in the form of a tennis racket.


This unusual strainer has a rounded form replicating the details of the interwoven strings to the racket head.


The upper portion of the silver tea strainer is fitted with a plain rest further surmounted with a simplified tennis ball.


The shaft and grip of the tennis racket handle is segmented with a band of embossed decoration and the butt cap is represented with a subtly flared terminal.


The lain rounded rim/ beam of the racket head bears the registration 'RD 510385', in addition to the full hallmarks.
