This is a great site!!

I don't know very much about silver but would be intrigued to know who made this lovely tea strainer.

Would love any info. It belonged to my gran.

Thank you.

Welcome to this forum!
It's sure Danish but I checked some maker's marks but couldn't find this one till now.
The shape is familiar like they made also in Norway. I've only one model from M.Aase
(Magnus Aase)he lived from, he lived from 1876-1953. I think this model is made between the end of late 19th century till the early 20th century.The ornaments are real danish. There are some experts on this forum who can give you the total answer about the makers mark. Can you tell us if there is a silver alloy mark on it? And what kind of silver are you colecting, only scandinavian. At my side I collect Norway silver and sometimes buy other european silver/ed objects. I started with collecting beginning this summer. Research is a interesting time spend. So if you don't get the total information I will look for the maker's mark P. I only saw in advertisings that compleet sets are with original little leak out cistern, but I don't have one.
It's good to see scandinavian silver for change!
Succes and enjoy the silver, silverhunter.

Short reaction (perhaps) it's made by A.Petersen worked in Copenhagen from 1893-1910? Considering the hallmark of Danmark
I've looked twice and in stead of three towers, there are two towers showed in the mark(perhaps I'm wrong,wearing reading classes). I don't know if the hallmark has been changed over the years in Danmark but find this also interesting.

Last reaction for today!

There is also a silversmith Petersen relocated to Montreal in 1929 and started with sons a business over there. There are more Petersen silversmiths still making silver,good to know!
This Petersen closed his shop in 1979.
I think there are a lot of scandinavian silversmiths who moved to the USA in the early 20th century.

The tea strainer is plated. On Danish objects two towers means plated (three towers silver) and the P means also plated in danish.
