Late 18th early 19th century coach wooden passenger seat/foot warmer with a brass tank insert.This square box shaped warmer is in two halves and the top half is covered by a patterned fabric and is 29cm wide by 24cm depth by 9cm.
Attached to the front of the lower half is a small brass carrying handle and hook latch fitted to keep the two halves together. On the base of the warmer there are 4 x 2cm by 2cm round stubby legs which it sits on.
When the top half of the warmer is opened it discloses a square brass tank, 21cm wide by 18cm depth by 4cm high fitted into the lower part of the warmer. This tank would be taken out and filled with hot water and replaced back into the box, the passenger would then whilst journeying have either a warm seat or feet for the journey ahead.
The wear to the fabric covering on the top of the warmer clearly shows it’s had considerable use over the years, proving that it was essential in those early days of coach travel for your passenger to be comfortable whilst travelling.
This coach passenger warmer is in very good condition for its age and for the obvious usage it’s had and would make an excellent addition to any collection of early coach travel memorabilia
I’ve been involved in antiques for many years of my life both buying and selling, although now it’s basically more selling of the antiques that I’d either personally collected or kept previously as stock when dealing.
Which means, I guarantee that the exact same types of items offered by me for sale on this website will not be found being sold either through a dealer or private individual advertising on this site for less than I’m asking for mine.
However in the un-lightly event of this being inaccurate and you find the exact same type and condition of an item that I’m selling being offered for sale by another for less, I won’t just match their price, I will offer mine at 50% lower than their price, so I can’t be more fairer than that, can I.
