Electric bed warmer

Summer’s finally here, so it’s time to put the electric bed warmers away! This bed warmer was kindly donated by an ESB staff member in 1971. Made by Magnet, the warmer dates from 1914. It is triangular in shape, made from white porcelain, and needed to be charged for 15 minutes before use.
