Silver tea stainers started being produced in England towards the latter part of the 19th century, becoming more common during the 20th century with the increase in popularity, and availability, of tea. The introduction of tea bags c.1908 made them less utilised items, however tea purists still insist on loose leaf tea poured through a tea strainer to provide the best tea drinking experience. Examples in the Art Deco and Modernist designs are highly sought after
