Rococo Hot-Closet Radiator

In June 2004, I posted the following inquiry:

my old radiator

I have a radiator that is about 5 feet long and 38 inches high. It has a food warmer (30 inches long and 14 inches deep) in the center with 11 short columns under it. There are 6 full-size columns on each side of the food warmer. It is stamped “American Radiator Co.” on the end and, at the bottom near the fitting it is stamped “Rococo”. I believe the Standard Sanitary Company merged with the American Radiator Co. in 1929 & became American-Standard, Inc. Can you give me any information on this beautiful piece and is it unusual?

This piece came from a house built in approximately 1910.

In answer to my inquiry, my love for this beauty was confirmed! I was told that I have a “Rococo Hot-Closet Radiator”. I had a few responses indicating interest in buying, but I was not ready to part with this piece and my husband, cousins, and brother-out-laws have been willing to gingerly relocate it when we last moved our household. Seventeen years later, I am downsizing and reluctantly must part with it, but want to find a good home for this gorgeous piece.

    Where is this beauty located?

    Did you ever have it actually hooked into a heating system?

    We live in NC and have never had it hooked into a heating system, but it was in its original home.
