Roaster

<< >>
Description
Adjustable, shallow, three-sided pan mounted to an L-shaped, wrought-iron frame with two large hooks on its vertical side for hanging over a fireplace fender. The T-shaped handle fits through a slot in the horizontal side of the frame and has ends that loop around it; pulling and pushing the handle slides the pan backward and forward on the frame. A hinged, skewer-shaped piece attached to the back of the pan's flat side fits in holes in the handle so it can be propped up to different angles. Folded and riveted construction. No marks.
Could be used for roasting or toasting.
