The front side of the strainer with a subtle martelé, the handle spreading slightly towards the end and adorned with a plastical butterfly. The drip pan also showing a hammered surface and standing on three flared, butterfly shaped feet. Very rare tea strainer in good and authentic condition. The strainer itself stamped for Copenhagen 1919, the drip pan for 1920 (the town mark of the drip pan rubbed).
The “Butterfly” cutlery was produced in small quantities only, also by Frigast and is today one of the most sought-after cutlery of the Art Nouveau period. The hammered surface as well as the butterfly pattern are in excellent condition and not blind polished in any way. Without monogram.
