Antique Sieve Strainer Kitchen Canning w/ Holder Stand 9 inch
This a good clean, used, all metal kitchen canning strainer, designed to fit (clip on) to your 5.5" diameter mouth jar or stainless steel bowl with the lip at the top rim of the bowl or jar. The holder / stand is a separate unit, from the strainer, and the strained is 7" diameter at the top and also with clip in place just like the lower part of the stand, as mentioned. The clips on the stand work quite well in holding the strainer in place on the stand. The stand has one side handle for extra control. The stand and strainer is 9" tall, and is clean tin or sheet metal, with no rust, some very minor pitting noted, very clean. All the holes in the strainer are the same size about 1/16" diameter, no damage. This one is suitable for cloth or paper type strainers to fit in it, or use it by itself. A very nicely made kitchen collectible from the 1920's era!
