I Have Died of Cuteness

This is a copper muff warmer.  It is four inches wide and two tall.  It was probably made in the 1850s.  A lady was meant to fill it with hot water and tuck it into the fur muff in which she warmed her hands.  My grandmother told me about these a thousand years ago, but I had forgotten until now.  It would make a charming flask.  Here is where you can buy it for me.  Thank you in advance.
