This pottery foot/bed warmer is 8 1/4" long, 3 1/2" wide and 4 1/2" high at the opening. This was an early "hot water bottle" used to warm beds. Before central heating, homes heated by fireplaces often had bedrooms that were cold and damp. Getting into a bed which was cold and clammy was not only uncomfortable, but unhealthy with no medications readily available. The foot warmers were used to warm up and dry the bed in the evening, and were a big improvement over brass pans filled with hot coals which were used in earlier times and were a cause of some house fires. There is a tiny chip on the edge of the stopper that does not affect its closure. Place this in a vintage decorated bedroom, and try it out with hot water some cold night. I will combine orders for discount and shipping savings. Please email me with any questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
