Here is an antique silver plated julep strainer with an aesthetic design. It is unmarked as to manufacturer. It measures about 5 and 7/8ths inches in length and the bowl measures approximately 2 and 3/4ths inches wide.
The pattern name is unknown. It is somewhat similar to the aesthetic Eastlake pattern that dates to 1882. My photos were taken on a page from an 1891 Simmons Hardware catalog which features a julep strainer in this same design. There were some other items on this page identified as being manufactured by William Rogers but it is not clear whether this strainer belonged in that grouping. I believe it to be silverplate. Unlike many other julep strainers that have a “star” or “clover” or “shield” cut-out in the handle (presumably to hang the strainer on the wall), this one does not.
