This Vintage Peacock design pocket / handwarmer was never used. It comes with 2 new burners still wrapped in original cellophane. It has a lovely shiny finish. There are a few small erosion spots, as seen in the fourth photo, but no scratches . Marked Made in Japan, Patent No. 249642.268916. I believe it dates from the 50's or possibly the 40's. About 3 3/4" x 2 3/4". Though people refer to these as stainless steel or chrome, they are all actual brass and nickel plated. This is still fully functional. Here's how they work.
"The catalytic reaction of platinum decomposes vaporized benzine into carbon dioxide and water. The PEACOCK pocket warmer utilizes oxidation heat generated during the catalytic process."
Here's more info on these. http://www.hakkin.co.jp/index.html.
It needs to be filled with good quality lighter fluid and only needs to be lit for the heat to start the catalytic process, there is no flame produced. Once lit, it will burn for more than 24 hours. Very safe, very cool! Great for hunting, camping, or any outdoor activities.
