Here for sale is a great large antique brass sieve. Made by N. Greening & Sons, Hayes Middlesex, England. Great for decoration in the garden and made from brass so will discolour if left outside. These test sieves were used in a commercial laboratory and are dated 1962 on the front plaque. Perfect for upcycling or repurposing.

Soured from an old Government laboratory before demolition.


No splits or cracks in mesh. Great condition for age. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!

Dimensions are approximate

32 cm diameter, 10 cm height
