Never saw one of these. Someone posted this on Facebook. Couldn't resist.

    It's called either a "dining-room" or "hot-closet" radiator, for obvious reasons.

    Great radiator. I'd like to have one in my dining room. Changing out the valve and spud deters me from finding one, cleaning it and refinishing it. I don't need the extra work just for the esthetics. :)

    That is most likely a retrofit to that space I'd guess. The 1/2" copper tells of a 1950s or newer install and water. That rad is much older than 1950.

    I like it!

    that and a circular radiator are on my wish list. One in an old mansion near me is mounted up high on the wall, the cabinet more eye level.
