This design was patented by Frank H. Vogt and the patent was assigned to Charles J. Hauck who was a manufacturer of fancy metal goods at his Brooklyn, N.Y. location. The patent can be viewed at my blog post http://queenofsienna.wordpress.com/2014/06/21/some-turn-of-the-century-cocktail-strainer-patents/

Although this patent was assigned to Charles J. Hauck & Son, I do not see their mark on this strainer, only the patent date.

 have written a blog post about C. J. Hauck, including patent illustrations, which can be found here:

Theis strainer does not appear to have been plated and it is not magnetic. It could be brass, an alloy or a white metal. It has a dark patina.
