Flandre

An early bed warming pan with a pierced copper lid decorated with a prancing stag with collar surrounded by foliage. With the original wrought iron stem.

A bed warmer or warming pan was a common household item in countries with cold winters, especially in Europe. It consisted of a metal container, usually fitted with a handle and shaped somewhat like a modern frying pan, with a solid or finely perforated lid. The pan would be filled with embers and placed under the covers of a bed, to warm it up and/or dry it out before use.

Southern Netherlands. 17th century.

Note: sold as found with antique (pre-1900) repairs and damages caused by intensive, daily domestic use.
