Note This can be brought to the UK on the next truck around the 1st wek of July. Please Message for more info. Once in a life time opportunity to adorn your home with this historical Piece of Chateau heating history.
This piece really does have a rightful place in a museum. The earliest form of radiator style heating in the incredible shape of a serpent snake or perhaps dragon from the early 1800's possibly earlier. Further research from more knowledgable on ancient heating has now shown this to be the earliest of Fire Grate Blowers with cool air being sucked in and warm blown from the serpents mouth into the room, greatly increasing the heating capacity for ancient large draughty stone rooms. Solid cast iron tubing (formed 1 solid continual piece) coils to finish with the highly detailed serpents head very similar to the ornate gutter spouts found on Chateau and churches in the day. I have every reason to believe this could be the last of it's kind complete in existence endless researching has turned up nothing even similar to this magnificent piece.An incredible talking piece for the collectors home decorative in its own right, even heating again with the expertise of a specialist. Alternatively it would make an impressive water feature for the stately garden.
Solid cast iron no cracks or damage. Untouched in it's long life it could be blacked or polished but I shall leave in original authentic condition for buyers preference. Payments to be made in.
