Linking up today with Vintage Thingie Thursday, I've had this heater in storage for ages. I was going to use it on my sun porch originally. We have decided to put it on our new deck when finished, we will run a gas line to it and use it on chilly nights.
The Wheeler Company who made this started in 1890 in West Virginia. They are still in business but have expanded and merged with another company. There is a location here in Lenexa, Kansas.
This model was patented in 1922. The lava grates are still all in tact. I love the claw feet, and the design of the heater.
Have a good day.
