Angora Tea Leaves Strainer
Silver plated copper base (E.P.C.A)
Stamped into the underneath side wing is:
MADE IN ENGLAND
Single Cup self supporting
Measures: 110mm x 62mm x 20mm deep
Checked against both "standard" size teacups and demi-cups, comfortably fits without issues.
NO physical damage
Silver lustre is high
NO signs of base metal (copper) show-through
Just 2 very small oxidisation "black spots" noticed, these are not of serious concern
Bowl is clean, unstained (these commonly become stained from Tannin (Tea) and it is very important to keep accessories such as this clean after each use)
Silverware always has the oxidisation/tarnishing issue over time, so to reduce this to a minimum I have now placed this tea leaves strainer within sealed plastic to reduce the amount of contact with "air" reducing the period of time between cleans.
