Adaptable Hot Water Bottle and Bed Warmer

Following the death of her grandmother, Flora Vere O’Brien of Ballyallia House, the donor, Mrs Veronica Rowe, found this glazed stoneware device among her possessions. It was made at Old Fulham Pottery in London, and was registered in 1906 even though it had been manufactured there since 1904. The hot water it would have contained when in used was held inside by a wood and cork top which was lost prior to donation.
