Glasgow Lemon Strainer by Robert Gray






Details

Lemon strainers were used for adding fruit juice, oranges and limes as well as lemons, to punch and other cocktails.

 

This example has a single side handles and a hook so that it can sit comfortably on top of a goblet. Scottish wine strainers are very scarce and this example was made by the premier Glasgow silversmiths, Robert Gray & Son. The hallmarks include two examples of the lion rampant, but no date letter. Given the working period of the makers, it is likely that this wine strainer was made just prior to the opening of the Glasgow Assay Office in 1819. It is excellent condition.
