Details of Victorian Radiators

Early, fancy radiators

My these were heavy! 62 inches long and 35 tall these two beauties came from a very grand house on the south side where, as a novelty invention in Victorian days, they sat on prominent display in pride of position in the main hallway/entrance. They have been made, as far as I can tell, out of sections bolted together and sealed with red lead. these are going to be a bit more complicated to get pressure tested and re-bushed for modern pipes, but nothing is beyond the experience of our radiator restoring man and if it was built up and sealed once, it can be done again and whilst a couple of the seams look to have been a bit weepy (under a gravity fed system), it was working fine, as it has for the last 120 years and has no cracks etc. I'd love to see a modern rad last that long, or even live that long to see it myself.
Its most unusual to see a plumbers cast badge on these things and a Glasgow one as well, and a handy flat ventilation grille on the top adds a lovely touch.
