La servante nº 188.8.131.52
Cette servante apparaît dans l’article que j’ai consacré à la présentation des servantes et que vous trouverez ici.
Le présent article est le contenu d’une réponse à une demande de détails qui me fut faite après une intervention sur le forum de forgerons I Forge Iron.
La servante nº 7184.108.40.206 est une jolie servante
This particular warming shelf of the Hotermans collection in the Stewart museum in Montréal is described on the museum tag as a warming shelf with a fixed plateau and handle carrier. It was specifically designed to be used as a support for a pan with a long handle.
The support is the ‘Y’ shaped piece. In the following pic, you have one of these long handled pans resting on a tripod equipped with the same type of ‘Y’ shaped support. On this tripod, the support can be moved.
In the case of our warming shelf, the ‘Y’ support (all measurements in mm) is forged from a 5 x 20 flat piece of iron. The top (‘U’) part measures 56 mm wide and 35 mm high. The entire support is 113 mm high and the length from the point to the top of the ‘Y’ is 172 mm.
The 2 other supports that keep the pan from sliding out of the shelf are forged from a 5 x 20 piece of iron. The top part of these is 32 mm wide and they are 64 mm high.
All these supports and the frame are riveted to the base ring.
The base ring is forge welded from of a 6 x 20 iron. The exterior diameter is ø 172 mm.
The over all height of the frame, including the extended handle at the top (which was designed to be used with a trammel sporting a wide hook), is 472 mm. The frame is forged of a 10 mm square iron. Unfortunately, my notes do not have the width of the frame nor the height of the handle/hook.
