A copper and brass Portable Bed Warming Pan with a turned fruitwood handle.

The handle of this pan unscrews on its brass fitting to reduce its size for travel. It has a brass screw on cap to the neck to both fill and empty the pan. The pan would be used to warm your bed, much like a hot water bottle today and presumably was taken whilst travelling and staying in hostelries en route. Circa 1900.
