This item makes a great worktop protector adding an unusual touch of French vintage décor to your kitchen. The glazed terracotta bed warming brick called a chauffeuse or heater, would be placed in an oven, fireplace or hot water. Most bed warmer bricks have central holes. This is to allow the brick to be grasped with an iron pick or pliers to prevent the user from getting burned. It could also be wrapped in newspaper or thick cloth. The whole thing is then slipped into the bed to be warmed up. This brick is embossed with the word Chauffeuse and the glaze has some wear.
We have a further two bed warming bricks. Please contact us for details.
