This 19th century hand-crafted brass hand warmer would have been owned by a woman of means and filled with coals so she could warm her hands on cold winter nights. The top is beautifully pierced with a lotus bud design. These buds are the middle stage of the lotus' development. Surrounding the lotus is an intricate series of honeycombed incisions, framed with unmarked circular bands. The focus created by these patterns draws the eye to the central lotus motif. That focus brings to mind the louts' symbolic meaning: one of rising from concealed obscurity to perfect beauty.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
