There a seller on ebay selling about 7 or 8 of these beautiful radiators for $150/each. Good luck bidding.

    Some scorched-air pusher

    apparently talked them into tearing the system out- "the problem was the old boiler". What a crook.

    Additional odd quote from the auction notes...

    It worked extremely well!

    Someone should drop them an email and ask them to at least store the radiators somewhere for the next owners.   We only had one radiator removed and tossed out years ago by a previous owner, and I surely wish they had just put it in the basement as I want to replace it.  Now I have to shop around to find the right "fit" and probably will have to deal with some expensive shipping.

    Just a DIY'er trying to learn, and improve and maintain his converted ca 1929 overhead gravity hot water system since there is no one local that can.
  • lovely radiators

    i see what appears to be an old hoffman vacuum vent on them as well. probably the boiler was replaced, and over fired, so it never worked right. only 4+ hours drive from me-how tempting!--nbc
