Interesting Radiators

Anyone seen the industrial looking coil one or the one with bird feet. I've looked though a few catalogs but could never find anything on the coil looking one.





If anyone wants additional pictures I can take a some more.

    Take more! LOL. Nice. I really like what looks to be a wooden handle.
    Let me know if you need me to take any of them off your hands ;)

    The ribbed one is a Clogston- you can find the ratings here:

    The bird-foot is a column-type radiator, whose ratings were likely standardized by the time it was made so any standard 2-column chart should work. But I haven't seen that design- is there a name on it? And where are these located?

    9 out of the 10 rads in my house are wooden handle and there are 3 of the ones with the birds feet. All the other ones in the house are the old fashioned tube type.

    I haven't seen that bird design either. How old's the house?

    I'm located in Bay City, Michigan. House was probably build between 1870-1880. I assume at the bird feet ones are not original to the house as under the carpet on the wood floor there are marks that are probably from a larger rad.

    The pipe ("tube") radiators might be Nason, Bundy, Reed or similar. I think Crane made that style too. Do they have names on them?
