    I found this heater at a flea market. After a little cleaning and a fresh set of new washers, it was ready to go.

    That’s a fine Tilley Radiator, Johan. Well fettled.

    If I’ve got my brain working properly, I think it’s a Tilley R1 “Ambassador” from the early 1950s (1950 - 1954).

    Cheers

    Thank you Johann, your exploded photograph is giving me some hints re how my R1 might come apart.

    @RobP
    Capable of being sole heat source for a moderately-sized room in winter hot enough? Yes.
