The circular bowl of the strainer is pierced with roundels and the two prongs would have been placed down the straight spout of the teapot allowing the tea to be poured and strained. These strainers are extremely rare and very few survive. An illustration of one in use is shown in Collecting Small Silverware, by Stephen Helliwell, page 55.
