Used for warming the bed before sleeping. You put hot water in the warmer pan and placed the warmer underneath the sheets.
On the bottom the warmer is marked "30 Q"; however do not know the significance of the marking.
On line searches of similar items suggest that the warmer may be from the early 1900s and may be of French or German origin.
The screw on stopper and ring are made of brass. Similar warmers were made of copper or zinc. This finish of this warmer suggests it to be zinc plated galvanized iron or steel (?).
Warmer measures ~12 inches long x ~8 inches wide x ~3-1/2 deep, not including the stopper and ring.
Weighs in at 2.5 lbs.
Warmer is in good vintage condition. It is old and has been used and shows the markings and discolouration of it's age. Warmer was filled with water and does not leak. Please refer to photos.
