Strainer - Metal, circa 1920 Reg. No: SH 000857
- Metal strainer, either brought to Australia by Vincenzo Candela and his wife Emanuela Nigro in 1920 or purchased here by them. The Candelas made much of their own food including homemade pasta, tomato sauce, wine, sausages and they roasted their own coffee. Items that could not be purchased in Australia were often ordered by mail from the Italian manufacturer. This was a practice common in both Italy and Australia. Vincenzo also received catalogues from Italy after his migration to Australia.
- Cone shaped metal strained, with a long handle.There is a thick band of metal at the top, then the rest is composed of fine metal mesh with small circular holes.
