antiques in the corner


Our apartment is in a really old house. I love it because it has old built in cabinets with decorative glass in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. I also love the old cast iron radiators. They have been cast with fancy designs - swirls, tendrils, and abstract forms - that make them seem very out of place against the updated walls and carpeting.

With a bit of internet research, I make these lovely radiators to be from the American Radiator Co., installed circa 1865. My landlord may not like her old heating system, but I do.
