    anyone recognize this radiator

    I found 17 radiators iin a basement. A dozen like this but as many as 10 sections. They were all mine if they left that afternoon. (Three friends, one construction, one ship building, one fisherman, and a neighbours garage.). I placed them in good homes and kept two for myself. Had a shipyard friend make me a rather large custom spud wrench to deal with these. Turned two of these into 4 section radiators. Each section is 5 column. I bought E.D.R. and thought I would find these but didn't. They are steam only. Massive amount of metal. Absolutely love them. Anyone know what these might be ??

    Any measurements of those

    Wonderful rads, and I believe from someone here that you can put a tape measure around them for one dimension, and multiply by the height.
    It looks as though they are steam only, with not top interconnection of sections.--NBC

    Italian Flue Ornamental

    You nailed it :-) Many thanks. I must have dozed off flipping pages. EDR also tells me these are circa 1916. The family we got these from told us they were castings from Italy but that seemed a little far-fetched.

    I use to have the same one in my shop with the intent of repainting it. I regret getting rid of it.
    It's all in the details.
