Made of thin sheets of brass, curved to conform to the shape of the body, this precursor of the hot water bottle has a hollow chamber destined to be filled with water via a small, capped opening. Two rings on the top edge hold the leather strap that allows it to be hung around the neck. Very good condition with very few traces of wear. An unidentified trademark bears the initials H.C.
