Cara is a stunning and uniquely designed antique lemon / citrus squeezer and strainer
She is in quality English silver plate
Her size perfect for squeezing oranges, lemons and limes
Her very clever engineering is easy use, her handles open to allow the halved fruit to be placed face down over the strainer. Closing the handles pushes a curved fork around each side which interlock together and squeezes out the juice, while the strainer keeps any seeds and pulp from entering the container.
Her makers marks on her handle are for William Hutton & Sons
Cara dates late Victorian
Cara has small of ware to her plating towards her neck of the handles however she is in good condition for her age and is fully useable and certainly a prize find.
