first the disclaimer:
this is not my house, so it is not my dust.
if I'd seen how much dust the camera flash would reveal, I would have dusted it off first, but it is a functional radiator, therefore, very very very hot to the touch.
perhaps I will remember to dust it in the spring and update the pictures here.
Discovering the art on the iron radiator at the coffee shop last weekend has made me a little obsessed with looking at radiators for artwork. This one has leaves in the design, and is a dark brown.
It is in the "lobby" area of the renovated old schoolhouse where I work. It is the only heat source in the lobby that I'm aware of, and it cranks out some serious heat.
We had radiators like this when I was a child, in the apartment in Germany but I really don't remember paying any attention to them so don't recall if they were designed.
I wish the bathroom in the house we are currently renting in had a radiator like this one in it. It always stays cold in there, and the thought of toasty warm towels just seems heavenly.
