Fabulous Waterford cut blue crystal hand cooler egg paperweight made in Ireland. It is signed Waterford on the bottom.

Throughout the Victorian era, a hand cooler was used by women to cool their hands. They were made of cool glass or stone, and egg-shaped to fit in the palm of the hand.

Women were expected to maintain a certain image, and to present a sweaty palm to a potential suitor would certainly be a social faux pas. As a result, they made sure to have their hand coolers wherever they went. Measures 2 3/4" high x 1 3/4" across at the widest point.

Thanks so much for looking and please be sure to check out my other unique and vintage items! :)
