4 lbs., handle does not move, but can be pried off, 9.5" x 8". 3 small nobs form "feet" to keep it steady and off a surface. Found it at a Deep South estate sale. "SAS" imprint on the bottom.
I think it's a trivet.
It seems to have the advantages of a trivet...except that handle that's in the way! My alternate path of inquiry is that it's a cast iron stove part.
Can you slide an iron skillet under the handle?
About 1" of clearance.
Old burger press?
Thought of that, after watching "Drive-ins, Diners, & Dives." The smooth underside is easier to clean than the pebbly topside.
I was going to say a trivet until I read that you have pointed out about handle, then I was going to say some kind of a press, but your response to knifesavers makes a lot of sense that it is not the best design for that.
I have the good people over at Collectors Weekly looking at this, also.
