ornate radiators

Thought these were pretty neat looking. They don't resemble the ugly things I have.

    American Radiator

    Those are what I have in my apartment. American Radiator Company's "Rococo" design, suitable for both steam and hot water. Very snazzy in silver! They fell out of fashion after about 1920 for more plain utilitarian designs.

    old rads

    very nice, and i expect that most of that price is for the delivery! do you have 1-pipe [as they are], or 2-pipe--nbc
  • Just in case....

    anyone is thinking of buying these, if you look closely you will see that they are for steam only...they are only connected at the bottom.

    one pipe

     I have a one pipe system. I only have one radiator that looks like this. I don't know how to describe what my others look like .... um, weird, and not like this!!!

    If I had some broken ones I would buy these, they are beautiful. However, mine are working and no reason to fix what's not broken! :)
