mobile warming trays part 2

Post by gregory23b »

Not being able to locate the thread about warming trays, I have started this one, if we find it, it can be merged, I found this image by chance, French.

Off top of the head, late 15th century, say 1470s onwards, but if I track the MSS ref it might be more precise. But the design is the same as the ones feature before, a simple low box with truckle wheels, the image gives the impression it might be made of latten/brass.

Or it could be wood with sand inside. I think that would do well enough for a small fire.

If you search hard enough you might find online some pictures of Itallian 15th/16th century food hotplates. I found them when I was looking up braziers but can't remember where.
