Antique Silver Tea Strainer info needed


Hi Everyone I would love some help.

Could anybody tell me date and maker of this tea strainer? Is it valuable?

Thanks so much!

This is an American piece, made by the Frank M Whiting Company of North Attleboro, Massachusetts.

As it is sterling silver (925/1000) it has value with regard to its silver content. There are online scrap silver calculators which will give you a minimum value. I do not know its commercial value.

Thank you so much! do you know the age? Not sure if the numbers tell that.

Probably first half of the 20th century, but US silver is not my area of expertise.
