Folembray thingy: trivet? battery rest? jar lid??
« on: November 27, 2012, 08:42:42 PM »
Can anyone identify this Folembray glass disk?  It's being sold as a battery rest, which is possible, but I'm doubtful.  The trademark is SAVOR which obviously makes me think it's some sort of kitchen glass.  Any ideas??

The Folembray site does not include it with insulators but on it's own as a trademark... but seemingly not of the glassworks who also did disks with their tm/names etc. Their insulators look fairly conventional too.

Trademark Savor seemed to belong to a Jam or jam-jar supplier E. Hebert of Paris.

is your tape measure in cms or inches?
That will be the difference between coaster and wine coaster.

I think it is 13 to 14 cms diameter (5 to 6 inches) assuming same size as other one.

If I am right on TM owner and being a little creative, how about an advertising drip tester tray for jam.  I use a small plate or saucer when making jam, others drip to their hands but that is too hot for me. Size is ideal... what do our other jam makers do?

I have never heard of dripping jam on your hand!
You put a tiny bit onto a cold saucer to see if it will set. Wait until it has cooled, then run your fingernail into it, to see if a skin has formed on the surface and to check how runny it is.
