 for placement of hot dishes on sideboards.  They have sliding supports to fit a varying

array of shapes and sizes, making them suitable for a number of contemporary usages -

 including silver, ceramics, or even decorative objects that one might wish to elevate on a table.


Condition: Excellent; some tarnish buildup around burner lid and feet; one foot with slight tilt, visible in images
