We are offering this wonderful small copper hand warmer, dating circa 19th century, with Chinese markings on the bottom. Top has a beautiful intricate pierced design.
Top fits snugly in place into the carry-handle base. It measures 5 1/2 inches wide from handle to handle, 3 1/4 inches front to back, 3 1/4 inches high, and 4 1/2 inches high to top of handle.
Inside shows wear from use and some oxidation, but bottom remains strong and intact. Copper pot shows normal aged patina to the finish, and is missing one rivet on the handle support at one end. Pierced top shows a small amount of damage to one end, as shown in the image, but overall is in beautiful condition.
This has not been cleaned and the old finish, with years of patina, remains intact.
