In the past this would have been a round hoop strung with horsehair or coarse fabric through which foods were pressed, creating a smooth puree. This sort of sieve is still used today in classic French kitchens and is called a tamis; it is usually strung with a fine metal or nylon mesh screen. A food mill makes a good substitute—it is a round metal container with a perforated disk at the bottom and a crank that passes food, but not seeds and larger pieces of food, through the holes.
