TWO EARLY AMERICAN (18TH TO EARLY 19TH CENTURY) FOOT WARMERS

Foot warmers were used in the carriage to keep travellers warm on those cold, snowy nights. Called a Foot warmer or carriage warmer, hot coals were placed in tin or iron, sometimes redware containers inside the warmer, and ladies would put their feet on them, to keep warm. There were allowed in churches (early churches did not allow stoves) Men took their dogs into the church to keep warm, therefore, the phrase, Dog is Man's best Friend! The tin foot warmer is unique as it is round and made of punched tin. I have never seen a round foot warmer. The second is made from all wood, being the EARLIEST of foot warmers. I have seen many foot warmers made of tin and wood, with hearts punched into them, this is earlier. These are both great finds of the colonial American period. THE EARLY ALL TIN ROUND FOOTWARMER HAS BEEN SOLD.

SIGNED SPINNING WHEEL IN ORIGINAL PAINT

This spinning wheel is from 1804, with signed initials inscribed in the wood. This was painted black, original paint, and would be called a 'mourning wheel'.

This is complete except for part of the bobbin, which has a piece missing. Easily fixed, this piece can be taken apart and repaired. GREAT wheel, nice and steady, easy for spinning on today.
