A James II Toy silver Colander.
A James II silver Toy colander with handle, London 1685 [probably], by George Manjoy.
This is almost certainly the colander illustrated in Houart’s ‘Miniature Silver Toys‘, the image in that book provided by Christie’s auctioneers, London.
Good. The solder-work of this toy is original but quite crude. Minor knocks to the rim edge. Slight distortions to the handle.
Length – 5.60 cm.; Width – 3.30 cm.; Height – 1.90 cm.; Weight – 10.90 gms.
