Where can I find a container to let me strain and store bacon grease?

My mom has this old tin that has a built in (removable) strainer on the top (like a canning jar strainer) and then a lid. She pours all her bacon grease into this can. The strainer catches the chunks of bacon, then all the grease goes to the bottom, where it hardens into lard while in the fridge. Then she can take off the strainer and scoop out the lard to use for cooking.
I can't find this for sale anywhere. I'm not sure what to call it. It's not a fat separator (there is no pour spout). It's a lard can...or bacon grease can. I've tried Amazon, Google, and eBay with no luck.
Anyone know what it's actually called, or even better, where to buy one?
