We’ve had this for a bit, and while I’ve wondered what it was for, I hadn’t gotten around to asking or doing any research until this morning. What I found is that this was apparently a foot or bed warmer… you put hot ashes in it, to keep your tootsies from freezing! (Most bed warmers have much longer handles, but I did find one very similar to this, called a foot warmer.)
It’s beautifully detailed with a floral design.
Dimensions: With the handle, it’s 10.5″ long. The warming compartment is 4 1/2″ in diameter, and about 1 1/2″ high.
FIRM Price: $15.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $.83 for a total of $15.83.
Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
Location & Purchasing: This piece is located in our display case (#27) at Cabot Mill Antiques, Fort Andross, 14 Maine Street, Brunswick ME. You can purchase directly through them by visiting that beautiful shop, 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm (7:00 pm on Fridays).
Alternatively, if you don’t mind waiting a bit:
Shipping & Delivery: Because this item is on display 20 miles from us, I may not even know for several days (usually over a weekend) whether or not an item is still available, but if it is, I can bring it back to Lewiston for you the next time I’m in Brunswick updating our display. At that point, you’d be able to take advantage of local pick up at my office (by appointment only), or I can get it delivered to you per the next paragraph.
We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn most days, or along the Lewiston-Lisbon-Topsham-Brunswick route (dates vary), for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.
Shipping is $12.00.
