J. C. Hauck was a manufacturer of fancy metal goods at his Brooklyn, N.Y. location in the 1860s. His son, Edward, obtained a patent for a cocktail shaker in 1884, and another son, Charles Jr., obtained a patent for another variation of a julep strainer in 1890. I have written a blog post about J. C. Hauck, including patent illustrations, which can be found here:
