Please tell me what this little filter belongs to?

Found this little metal mesh filter in a high up cupboard this morning.  I've never seen it before (I think).  Ed says he's never seen it either.  It's approximately 2 1/2 " tall and almost 3 " at the upper diameter.   It looks to be reasonable quality.    It would not fit our coffee maker.

I have seen similar items sold as crap-catchers for the drain of your kitchen sink (ie keep it in the plug-hole when not using the plug), in order to prevent food debris (and presumably the odd piece of jewelry, etc) from getting caught in the pipes.

 

That being said, the sink kind generally have a bigger lip. So the tea infuser guess is probably the correct one.

Don't own a traditional teapot that's under 70 years old and it sure didn't come with a metal mesh filter.  We have a fairly new teapot for Chinese tea...I'll see if it fits...


By gosh, it does...and it was also sitting on the same shelf as the Chinese tea pot and accessories...tea (in bags), little Chinese tea cups, etc.  Duh....

 

Thanks.
