I like pairs!
I like pears too, I suppose!
I also like brandy.
These days I am less than likely to drink, however.
I have had the warmer with the copper base for nearly twenty years and have used it once a year to warm the brandy before it was ignited and went onto the traditional Xmas pudding. Some Australians suffer from overeating traditional pudding on Dec 25 in heatwave temperatures: the power of tradition and family.
So when I saw the second one, almost identical except for the base material, I had to buy it for the asking $22 at a Collector's Fair some five months ago!
I have not been able to find a maker's mark on either of the two warmers. The handles look like rose-wood. The bowls are beautifully shaped and I suspect Scandinavian manufacture.
Any comments or suggestions about these 'once a year" items would be appreciated.
