A Perfect Fit. Long low reclaimed cast iron radiator fitted in Dorset

This one took some sourcing! A client wanted a fairly high BTU output radiator for their house restoration project in Dorset. The catch? Low enough to fit under the cupboards. Old cast iron rads this long and low are quite uncommon. As soon as this little beauty (Ideal, four columns, 18 inch high, neo-classic and a whopping 22 sections long) came up for sale, it had their name on it!

Radiator Restoration for Grade 1 Heritage Property The Circus, Bath

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?!

Show stopping colour!

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.

Hands up if you love this!

A Duchess with a funky metallic paint finish. To get the look mix silver and black hammerite paint. Here’s one we prepared earlier! A slim duchess radiator which went to Noss Mayo in Plymouth. It certainly gets our vote.

Unusual 18″ high Princess radiator

Pictured here is a really rare 18″ high ‘Princess’ radiator, you just don’t see many around in these dimensions, so it was a lucky find.
