Description
Bird or small fowl roaster with six hinged wire hooks (one pair over two pairs) inside the reflector and a vertical, tapered, C-shaped strap handle with scrolled lower terminal on the outside that allows it to stand upright. Made from two pieces joined by a folded seam, then cut and folded at a right angle at bottom to create a drip pan and at a shallow or obtuse angle at top to reflect heat. Continuous wire-rolled rim; handle fastened by bent ends of its wire edges. No marks.
