Bed Warmer

English, c. 1675

Brass, iron. Folky decoration on the lid done with three circular punches and a bit of dash engraving. Typical English simplicity -- a Dutch brazier could not have restrained himself and would have done much more elaborate decoration. Forged iron handle with good hanging loop. Perfect for a simple country house and simple country folk! Lid reset twice onto original hinge. Otherwise good original condition.

44-1/2" long overall, lid 13" diam.
