Rare Old Antique Brass Bed Warmer w Halloween Witch on Broom Design Eng Reg Mk

This is an interesting artifact. Given the seller's statement that is was made in England in the 1880s, it would have been too early to have been made for the American Halloween market, since one wasn't truly developed at that time. Nonetheless, I can see this easily fitting into a collection even though the design is in the tradition of an English interest in supernatural beings rather than any intended connection to what we now celebrate as Halloween.
