Tiffin carrier

My mum's still using her antique tiffin carrier ... Hey, it works!


Wikipedia - In some former British colonies, the stacked porcelain or metal round trays with handles are called tiffin carriers (similar to the dabba transported by a Dabbawala / Tiffin Wallah), and small-scale caterers use them for delivering meals to individual homes.
