I'd like to create a flashcard for that thing below. But the longer I try to do so, the more confused I get. None of the words suggested for this box (mesh box, lattice box, barred box, skeleton container, iron-barred box) appears in a monolingual dictionary on the web (I got the English terms from ENG-GER dictionaries and tried to look them up via OneLook Dictionary search). There is no entry in the English version of Wikipedia for this type of box (strangely, only the German Wikipedia seems to have one, "Gitterbox"). But which of these words should I know as a learner? And what would be a good definition for this box?
Huh. I've never thought about what this might be called. I would simply describe it an "open box with wire-mesh sides". It's possible the industry that uses something like this has a more specific jargon for it which new employees have to learn, but the average English speaker wouldn't know.
I guess the lesson is that not all objects or concepts have an exact name in English, even if they do in German. Like these, for example.
