For your consideration is a vintage long handled metal strainer/dipper.
Possibly Stainless Steel
The item measures 12" long. The depth of the basket/strainer is 1 3/4" deep.
I purchased this item at a Charity Sale so I am not sure of the age, history, etc.
I'm not sure what it was used for. Maybe A Tea Bag Holder, Dip Boiled Eggs, Vegetables, ???
If anyone knows more about this item, please let me know.
