I'll guess: a double boiler?
maybe a cold service chaffing dish?
very specific too...
Definitely not a double boiler I did think of a chafing dish but why is the lid so deep?
Plus the lid is sealed to the top bit so it can't be Bain marie double boiler type thing
Does the kid separate from that?
No it doesn't it's sealed and has water in it
"No it doesn't it's sealed and has water in it."
It's sealed 'permanently'? How does the water get in or get changed? Is it there forever? If it's sealed how can you be sure it's water?
Yes sealed permanently I can hear liquid in the lid and the base obviously not entirely sure it's water but it sounds like it.
then it might be a chilling chafing dish that you freeze before service....
Makes sense but hard to be sure about the space inside the bottom part. Could it be for liquids? Hard to figure the loet surface of the top would be submerged and you had to lift the top off to serve. Maybe it's just meant to keep something cold prior to being opened for service. Someone here will know.
Where did you find it? Was it a gift? Did you buy it at a store? Is there a brand name anywhere on it?
What part of the world are you in? Could it be used for a specific cultural dish?
Freeze the top and use it to quick chill stock?
maybe some king of mold. To freeze ice cream or make cold molds to fill the center?.
need to see more pics of it.
Is it double thick sides? put liquid into the sides to cool things?
Based on your pic, Im thinking some kind of freezer or cooler mold
