Vintage Braziers, grates, and stoves.
« on: June 22, 2017, 08:12:38 AM »
I saw this on Townsend's site and thought, given some other braziers that have showed up here from time to time, it was interesting.  At least the braziers and old ovens.  The braziers are towards the bottom of the page.

lots of curious things to eyeball there Stan.

I never had the notion for a copper brazier before these. Would it produce a poison gas when hot, or burn up in short order,( I don't know)?

Unk, I think they have been safely using copper and copper alloys like bronze for braziers for centuries. Copper melts up near 2000F so I doubt it would melt burning charcoal.  What poison gas were you thinking it would produce?
