Here in Australia tea is becoming more and more popular as an alternative to coffee for the caffeine hit. Silver is a passion of mine and I was pleased to buy this tea strainer at the Rozelle markets a year ago at a reasonable price.
I like the way that this one is pierced in an eight pointed star pattern: symbolizing balance, harmony, cosmic order & nature’s rule.
The maker of this piece of Danish silver is Christian F Heise who worked from 1904 to 1932. Beneath the handle are his initials and the Three Tower mark of Danish silver & 29. The three Tower mark of Copenhage became the Danish standsard silver mark for all cities in 1893. It guarantees a purity of 826/1000. Each year has a slightly different design of the three towers.
