Do you suffer from cold feet? This could be your solution. Just fill the Doulton’s Improved Foot Warmer with hot water and screw down the lid. Wait a short while, and the heat will transfer to the stoneware pot and keep it warm for ages. You can have it by your chair to rest your feet on or put it into your bed.
Alternatively, you could put this late 19th century foot warmer from Lambeth Pottery, London, on display. Recommended!
It is in good condition with no identifiable cracks or chips on the body. The lid has its original gasket and a small chip to the edge. It seems to be in fully working order although I haven’t tested it.
It appears to have been buried as there seems to be a residue of dirt on the inside.
A great late 19th century display piece.
