Oil Heater HC112

Black and grey metal Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater.

Prior to the common use of oil heaters in the early 1900s wood and coal were the most popular forms of home heating. The use of oil heaters did little to change this though by 1919 over three million perfection oil heaters were in use. This heater comes with a copy of an old advertisement for the Perfection Oil Heater, reflecting the economic and social events of 1918.
