Description from Objects of Use
A traditional garden riddle, handmade in Whaley Bridge, High Peak by Hill & Sons, the UK’s sole surviving maker of wood framed riddles and sieves. These have 18″ steamed beech frames, and a choice of 1/2″, 3/8″, 1/4″, or 1/8″ mesh. The larger mesh is for removing stones or root vegetables and has a hand woven mesh, the finer two for sieving compost or soil to remove twigs and other larger un-rotted and persistent debris. These are both sturdier and more attractive than their common tin, plastic, or ply counterparts.
