OK. Am I tying this all together correctly?

It is an antique, but a modern version exists.
It is a part of a larger object.
It is used in maintaining that larger object.
It catches coals or embers.
It is associated with ice.
It has something to do with melting.

Is that the gist of it?

Pacanis... you will have to pardon me because I misrepresented this item earlier. So let me see if I can clear things up a bit....

It is an antique, and there is a more moderen version, however they are not needed anymore since this feature is usually built in.

Not part of a larger object.

It does maintain a larger object.

DOES NOT catch scoop coals or embers (my bad from earlier). It COLLECTS ICE.

It does NOT melt anything... (another my bad from earlier).

I kinda mucked this one up a bit, so please forgive me!!! Does that help at all?

Yes. It does. The item obviously does not exist and as Archie Bunker would say, "Is a pigment of your imagination". doo, doo

I'll do some more looking around tomorrow if it isn't guessed by then. Time to hit the hay before the hay hits me.

Was it used around the home or is it more geared for industrial use?

Jeeks, I'm not sure on your question. I guess it could have been used for both, but I can't find any info about it regarding that.

Miniman.... you are soooo close!!! Deincing... but not windscreens!
