The heater is from the 20s and works!, the cord has been replaced however, as the original is not safe, although I beleive I still have it. The bulbs are hard to find. The price of the heater with bulbs is $130, and the bulbs separately are $50 each. Price is negotiable.Trading is also a possibility. This heater works tremendously well, I find it is convenient to put under a desk facing you, it does not get too hot, but keeps your feet and legs warm in cold weather.
Sincerely,
Nicholas K. Heinrich

Hi Nicholas,

When I was more active on eBay a few years back, loose working bulbs were selling in the $35-$50 range though I haven't checked prices lately.  This is probably the most common radiant heater from this time period and I would value the whole thing at $75 or maybe slightly more if the finish is in really nice original condition.  I've seen some really nice elaborate examples of the 3 and 4 bulb heaters sell in the $250-$350 range in past years on eBay.  Just my opinion for what it's worth.  Maybe someone else would like to jump in here and comment.

Tim is right.  These show up fairly frequently and the bulbs have held their value at about $40-$50 on eBay (among collectors they go for about $25 each).  This appliance is called a luminous radiator.  Also fairly common on eBay is a GE three-bulb model that generally goes for $175-$250.  All the best, Chris

Both of the bulbs have sold, although the heater is still available for $20.00. Also, I found someone looking for the sausage typoe bulbs, does anyone have some they are willing to sell?

Everyone is looking for these bulbs.  Someone should be reproducing them (are you listening Kyp-Go?)

I called kyp-go, and they said that they have some or something like the sausage bulbs, and will look in their warehouse and call me back.

It may not be a lot, but when you have a three or four bulb heater, it adds up.

It was alot in those days, even though today's standard is 1500 watts, but really the only thing electric heat was used for was an area where a kerosene heater or heat producing kerosene lamp (such as an aladdin lamp), or even a coal or wood burning stove was not desirable or there was not enough space, such as a bathroom or cellar.
