This is a very unusual antique figural food warmer, c. 1903, from the home of W. B. Goad in Sturgis, Kentucky. This radiator-style, cast iron food warmer features a pair of intricate teal cameos on the two doors in the front. Each round cameo, featuring a woman’s profile, is framed by a beautiful design of acanthus leaves and volutes; the acanthus motif is repeated on the radiator at both the top and bottom. Inside are two shelves for heating food. The food warmer features a marble top, which is broken into two pieces (see picture); however, it does not detract from the beauty of the radiator, and it could easily be replaced. The food warmer (including the marble top) measures 39 1/8” tall, 56” wide, and 13” deep.
