Ornate Heat Grate + HUMIDIFIER! Cast Iron Brass Victorian Vent Register Louvers
Not just your ordinary antique heating vent! This one is high tech with a removable water reservoir. Never seen one before, but I assume it is an early humidifier. Has moving louvers in back and swivel bar in front. Flipping the bar up seems to hold the tank in place. Guaranteed to be an original, Victorian era piece. If the cast iron is cleaned up, it still appears to show some of its brass/copper wash. Overall it measures almost 17 inches wide and about 12 5/8 inches tall. All cast iron construction with a galvanized? Ordinary dings, rust, chippy paint, etc. No cracks or missing pieces to the ornate details.
Tank has rusted top ends and may need to spray flex seal to hold water. Quite a heavy, well made piece. You will not likely see another rarity like this again! All questions encouraged and answered.
