Default Broiler pan?

I just spotted this on ebay. It says it's a broiler pan but I don't understand how it would work?

7 19 '87. July 19, 1887. They have the name right, just can't read upside down or turn it around apparently.

Broilers like this were designed to be used atop a stove eye, the heat coming from below. Some had slots to let grease drip through, others, like this, nubs to raise the meat and let the fat disperse to the rim for draining.

It should have a tin lid that has probably turned to dust by now. Believe that is the same one that appeared on FB a couple days ago. Not surprised to see it on fleabay already...

Thanks for the patent info DougD. The design of this pan sent me on a quest to find out whether Mr. North had also invented the first wood stove grease fire. I found 10 years later he is designing improvements for vapor burners. Maybe he learned something from the design of this broiler?
