Glorious sunny weather today for delivery of a freshly restored vintage radiator to a prestigious house currently undergoing refurbishment in Bath. Tourists were out in force snapping pics of the Reclaimed Radiators Van (!). Did you know the original architect, John Wood the Elder, based the diameter of the Circus in Bath on the 318 foot diameter of Stonehenge?!
We painted up this little cast iron radiator in a show-stopping peacock blue finish for the window of The Old Bank Antiques Centre on the London Road in Bath. If you’re ever in the area, The Old Bank Antiques Centre is a treasure trove for people who just love vintage and antiques and well worth a visit.
We were lucky enough to be featured in Maggie Stevenson’s editorial in the November 2012 issue of Period Living, entitled…’Heating your home’. Read all about it on page 114. Big thanks to Maggie for including us.
We’ve just delivered a collection of traditional cast iron radiators to a private client who owns an apartment in Aberdeen Place, London. Our client already had some antique radiators, which were in need of refurbishment. We reconditioned her radiators and supplied in time for Christmas! As she was completely renovating her period property, we also supplied a number of additional cast iron radiators to match the existing system. More pics to follow when the project is complete.

We’re really grateful to Alex Schlesinger and David Moore, the owners of Old Bank Antiques for allowing us to showcase a fully restored round top cast iron radiator in their shop. Old Bank Antiques is not just any old antiques shop…. it’s more of a sumptuous emporium, and well known locally as a hunting ground for everyone who loves gorgeous old stuff!
We chose a fat round top radiator which we have finished in a fuscia pink for something a bit different! Old Bank Antiques is located on the London Road, and they have a really useful parking area at the back of the shop. The shop is divided into different micro-shops and is packed to the rafters with a fascinating array of lovely old things. Everything from stately period pieces, some highly desirable and funky retro stuff to the downright quirky one-off collectibles.
Old Bank Antiques is open seven days a week, and is well worth a visit. Click here to visit their website.
