These Veret electric bed warmers are another good example of the use of bakelite and other early plastics in the manufacture of household items. They are bottle shaped and were first patented in December 1947 and so presumably they started to be made shortly after. From the details on the label Veret were based in London and it is described as a bed warmer and airer.

The black bed warmer is made of bakelite whilst the blue warmer is made of a urea formaldehyde resin and the bright colour is much more unusual. They are both in very good condition.

The warmers are sold as collectable items only and are NOT to be used unless they are checked beforehand by a qualified electrician.

Overall size is approx 250mm long and 85mm diameter.

Price £18.00 each.
