Probably for use on top of a coal or wood stove. Has tabs all over to keep the food raised, and a trough for catching grease. Not sure what would have been cooked on it, probably bacon, steaks or similar food, just looking at it is making me hungry.Measures about 10-1/2 across not including the handle. Has some wear overall and a repair to the handle. Casting is a bit thin and it is not surprising that this would have broke once there. Expect minor evidence of use or imperfections, dings etc.
