People who bought this item also bought
French antique coal foot warmer circa 1850's-1900. Beautiful design embossed on both sides.
This portable coal foot warmer was used in the 19th century to keep feet warm, often in boats and trains as there were no heaters at the time.
Featuring a beautiful wooden handle and wooden slates on top, it presents very well.
The inside, and especially the little basket where the coal was going shows many areas of rust, which is not surprising looking at its age! It only adds more charm and authenticity.
You would still be able to use it and enjoy it for many years! You can use it on the table as a center piece with a small plant or candle on top, or in the garden as it is perfect to burn mosquito coils in it!
Measures: 24.5 x 14 x 17cm.
