Chinese Zhejiang Bronze Hand Warmer

Ref: D0607

This interesting, small, round piece was crafted with a swing handle that displays decorative details where it attaches to the body. The lid is pierced to emit heat from the coals burning inside. The lid and base are straight-sided and the body, a shallow, bulbous form. Notice the unusual, grayed patina, from generations of use. It makes a charming accessory for the modern home.
