    Generically, that's a ding room radiator. Several companies made them. To me this looks very similar to an American Hot-Closet radiator, but the pattern on the doors is different. I haven't found an exact match yet.

    Where can you find one? In your dreams, pal. :D Cast iron radiators are hard to find, and if you want something special, like one of these or a plate warmer or window radiator, good luck.

    @bboepple, those date back to the late 1800s/early 1900s and were used in dining rooms to warm plates and food. Here's some literature on one from 1903: https://heatinghelp.com/heating-museum/national-radiator-company-1903/

    As far as finding one, yes they are rare, but here are some places that sell used radiators: https://heatinghelp.com/systems-help-center/where-to-find-used-radiators/

    And Castrads makes radiators. They are not like this one, but they are beautiful. https://www.castrads.com/us/
