I have found this item but have no idea what it is, hoping someone may be able to enlighten me. It is brass and has a turned wood carrying handle.
It is 21 cm long and the diameter of the tube is 7cm.
Can anyone please tell me what this is 10485a11

Could you fill it with hot coals and wedge something in each end to keep them from falling out?

Well the other reason if not heat for the handle is to carry something, so it could be a removable handle to say carry a boat or some bit of kit. You slide it or x2 over something and then can carry it.

Might be a foot warmer in an open topped car or carriage. Unlikely to see soot or anything if they were warming bricks to put inside, or simply got the maid to scrub it out after use.
