The Dorchester Pottery Works was founded on Victory Road in Dorchester, a section of Boston, in 1895. The original owner was George H. Henderson. Foot warmers were widely used in the days before central heating. The type you have, sometimes called a ‘china pig,’ was filled with hot water and placed under bedding for overnight warmth. Dorchester Pottery continued to make its patented ‘Henderson Foot Warmer’ at least until 1920 Measures 11" x 6 1/2" x 5" At Vermont Picker 802 we sell Antique, Vintage, and Unique finds!
