Skylab Prototype Food Warming Tray

This came from the estate of a NASA engineer. It appears to be an unusual item, I have been unable to identify any recent catalogued sales of similar Skylab food warming trays (please let me know if you are aware of any).

Although a great artifact, it is outside my area of collecting and unfortunately has to go.

Measures approximately 49cm long by 31cm wide by 7.5cm deep.

Contact me if your interested.

I have a nice "S" number glossy (signed by Conrad, Bean and Carr — the three commanders) that shows a close up of the SL food warmer (tray). I also have some pictures of the trays in space.

Here is a close up picture of the tray. No idea if this is similar to those flown or a prototype...

The reason I knew where to find that specific image is since I own Conrad's and Bean's flown Skylab utensils it is stored with the utensils in my safe box. I have never compared the NASA glossy with the images of the SL-2 crew eating in space (I think those are signed by Conrad), but I will do so and get pictures posted from space....you have raised my curiosity.

After a number of requests re pricing, I would accept $450.

Will consider offers.
