WHAT A GREAT STOCKING STUFFER for that SPECIAL COLLECTOR! Right from a fine Early Estate is a REMARKABLE ORNATE FORMAL 18th CENTURY FRENCH SOLID SILVER ---- OVER THE CUP TEA STRAINER ----- One like this comes, perhaps.... ONCE in a Lifetime - BOLD HEAVY GAUGE SOLID SILVER with FRENCH EARLY HALLMARKS - To me dating these 18th C French Silver items is difficult and I have narrowed the province to PARIS or STRASBURG; as the MARKING is the CROWNED P - LION and BIRD for the SMALL ARTICLE DISCHARGE and assume the SOLID SILVER CONTENT with the LION - If Paris, it is the 1784 PERIOD ; if STRASBURG it would be the 1766 PERIOD - The BIRD is the SMALL ARTICLE DISCHARGE. You French Silver Experts will Know. PLEASE VIEW THE FULL HALLMARKS and make your own DATING.
