This bakelite electric bed warmer is a good example of the wide range of goods that were manufactured in bakelite. Made by Rothermel it is in the shape of the traditional hot water bottle, presumably because people were familiar with that shape. From the patent number this was first patented in June 1944 and presumably went into production quite soon after.

The warmer I have at the moment is dark brown in colour. It is in good condition but does have one of the screws in the side missing. It is sold as a collectable item only and is NOT to be used unless it is checked beforehand by a qualified electrician.

Overall size is approx 340mm long, 190mm wide and 60mm thick.

This bed warmer is now sold.
