A rare sterling silver rococo punch strainer by the famous Huguenot silversmith Paul de Lamerie, London, 1742. The round bowl of this strainer is finely pierced in a petal motif and is supported by opposing acanthus scroll and shell design handles. The strainer is hallmarked on the exterior of the bowl, just below the rim, with a complete set of marks including de Lamerie's third mark (PL in script beneath a crown). This strainer is in good condition and weighs a substantial 5.49 troy ounces. On the underside of one handle is the original scratch weight of 5oz. 10 dwt. There is an incipient stress crack on the top of one of the handles. No dents. Size: 8.25" length x 3.75" diameter x 1.25" ht.
