Sterling Holloware: Tea Balls

Antique Sterling Silver Tea Strainers

Antique sterling silver tea strainers have been around for centuries. Most silversmiths made sterling silver tea strainers for the luxury market since tea was a vital social event for the elite during the 18th and 19th centuries. People were tired of fishing out loose-leaf tea from their cups—so in entered the sterling silver tea infuser. Each tea strainer is a unique and beautiful work of art meant to be collected and admired. Nelson & Nelson is an antique store in New York City that has a wonderful selection of unique antique sterling silver tea strainers. Browse our selection online or in-store to add history to your tea and antique collection.
