Here is an antique julep strainer that is marked “C. J. Hauck & Son, Brooklyn, N.Y.” It measures approximately 5 and 11/16ths inches in length and the bowl measures approximately 2 and 5/8ths inches wide.
C. J. Hauck was a manufacturer of fancy metal goods at his Brooklyn, N.Y. location in the 1860s.
I have written a blog post about C. J. Hauck, including patent illustrations, which can be found here:
