Portable Pan with Heater


Category: Other Travel Items

Subcategory: Eating & Drinking

A silver plate on copper Pan with Spirit Heater and tripod base.

This is an unusual set and probably had a leather case originally, although all of the components pack inside the pan. The pan's handle is even hinged to fold inside its body with the lid cut out to fit over it. The pan and spirit heater are made of pressed sheet metal whilst the pan handle and folding tripod are made of cast metal. The base of the spirit heater is plated on brass as opposed to copper.

This is a neat little set and would have been very useful to a traveller. Mid to late 19th Century.

Packed size of pan is given.
