Description


The very first book devoted to antique silver lemon strainers, this is the fruit of a decade's research by a biology teacher turned silver expert who gives equal weight to analysis and aesthetics. Lemon strainers, normally consigned to the 'miscellany' pages of antique silver guides, are varied, beautiful and collectable and survive in surprising numbers considering their 150 years of use in punch making ended 200 years ago: the author's database contains 900 examples from England, Ireland, Scotland and America. After an extensive introduction, lemon strainers are described in 27 categories and lavishly illustrated with 268 figures.
