ANTIQUE Vintage GAS FIREPLACE INSERT HEATER ~FABULOUS 'SKYSCRAPER' DECO LEGS!

Fabulous old gas heater for easy restoral. Very Good Condition with no cracks in the thick ceramic back. ALL 5 ceramic radiants are in Excellent condition with no cracks, chips or repairs, and are original to the heater.
The front grill bars form a separated diamond pattern in the center. It's a bit cock-eyed as one of the vertical bars needs to be threaded back on properly.
Superb Art Deco "Skyscraper" styled iron legs! Curvy at the feet, with heavy pebbled texture. Nice as-is, and if painted black, or perhaps plated, would make this piece truly spectacular!

Heater is Unvented, bears its original metal Armstrong plaque, which reads: "Model 835 and 20,000 BTU". We do not have gas lines run , so have no way of testing. Please, if you're going to use this, have it inspected! Your gas company usually will do this at no cost.

Original on/off/ knob turns freely. Measures 31-1/4" across the front at the widest point (front feet), back measures 19-5/8" across. It is 20" tall at back center, and is 12-1/2" deep.
Weighs 48 lbs. packed for shipping, and will be a dimensional weight item. The cost listed above in 'shipping' may read high. Please contact us with your zip code for FedEx estimate.
We've shipped dozens of these old heaters, and have never had an insurance claim!
