How different to find a lovely blue and white plate with a metal dish attached underneath it to keep food warm. There is a spout which had a screw closure. There are handles to pick up the plate as well. Many of these hot water plate warmers were late 19th century but I cant say for sure the age of this one. The plate has a hairline crack in it, and the crazing is stained from years of use. The metal base has some rust on the undermeath.
It’s a really unusual item and an interesting addition to a collection. Please look at the pictures carefully and dont hesitate to ask any questions. I recommend pargo couriers at R60,00 to a destination of your choice or you may specify your own mode of shipping.
