Handsome and hefty decorative radiators

The larger of these decorative radiators weighed in at 173kg! They are likely to have been manufactured circa 1900 so it is fitting we have just delivered them to an Edwardian townhouse in Bath. They should certainly belt the heat out!

Twenty two radiators removed from a historic house 200 miles away arrived on pallets in October. The rads, mostly four columns, looked tired and were definitely in need of some TLC.

Before

Thankfully most tested fine i.e. they were watertight both before and after shot-blasting. David repaired a couple of the longer ones. Plenty of coats of off-white paint and they looked really smart.

After

Here they are all ready for the long journey back to their seaside home.

Reclaimed radiators was pleased to turn this job around in a little over four weeks, a week ahead of schedule.
