From hot water bottle to bed warmer
I don't think anyone has identified the item Michael Cregar inquired about (Farm Collector, August 2005, page 6). I have one like it. A German woman told me it was used to lift a metal hot water bottle out of the water, and it was also used as a bed warmer after wrapping it in a towel or rag. Hope this helps.
