Brass Warming Pan

I've come across a brass warming pan with what appears to be an original fruitwood handle. The handle tapers into the pan's brass socket and is secured with a nail that does not appear to be modern. Only the word "England" is stamped into the brass socket. The hinged front plate of the warming pan is a stamped Tudor Rose motif with piercings. The interior of the pan has more of a copper color (from the heated coals ?) I'm trying to date the piece and have been completely unsuccessful. I thought items were usually marked "Made In...." after 1910/20. The nail could help in dating but only if it was original and not repaired using an "older nail". Why the Tudor Rose motif? Queen Victoria's Jubilee was in June 1897.....a commerative piece perhaps. ANY Hints, clues, suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Steve
