Russell Hobbs Milk Warmer

R220.00

I’ve sold quite a few vintage porcelain Russell Hobbs coffee percolators over the years, which is what I thought this was when I first spotted it, but on second glance I realised that this pot is a bit too small to be a coffee pot, and lo and behold when I turned it upside down I saw the label – milk warmer! I had no idea that Russell Hobbs made a matching milk warmer! These porcelain coffee pots were made for Russell Hobbs by Wedgwood, so were presumably quite high end items, so it kind of makes sense that they would have a milk warmer as an accessory – you wouldn’t want to ruin your coffee with cold milk now would you! Obviously it’s a bit of an extravagance, but quite a nice idea, and a very attractive little pot, which obviously doesn’t hurt matters.

P.S. I tested it out with some water, and it seemed to bring water to the boil, so there’s a possibility that you could maybe also use it as a kettle?

Dimensions: 20cm tall x 11cm in diameter
