Transcript X3^ HOMESTEAD FIRES are Radiant Heaters for Fireplaces using gas as the fuel. Always appropriate, these fires add a touch of distinction and beauty to the Fire' place that would be an un- — _ QMESTEAD COAL- inviting void in an otherwise LJI FIRES m appearance charmingly decorated room. JJL JL are patterned after the Coal Baskets of England. A layer of indestructible coals of refractory clays is used to obtain the effect. Concealed behind and underneath the coals, is a radiant heat construction of advanced design. This construction is simple, substantial and serviceable. ^Shortly after being lit, the radiant members of the Coalfire become incandescent. This terrific heat is in turn passed to and through the coals. The coals, being radiating materials, propel the clean, odorless, radiant heat into the room to dispel chill. ^People seeing a Coalfire burning for the first time find it hard to believe that it is a gas radiant heater and that the coals are everlasting. flWhen heat is not required, Homestead Coalfires add a distinctive and decorative appeal to the fireplace at all seasons of the year. HOMESTEAD WOODFIRES are very natural repro- ductions of Oak or Birch logs piled over and in front of a radiant ember. ^Burning, the ember gives off radiant heat in generous quantities. The effect is one that meets with immediate favor with those who prefer the traditional wood fire on the hearth. flAn ingeniously concealed base casting carries the mechanical construction necessary. This base casting is designed to fit correctly on any andirons. ^Woodfires are available in two sizes and with Birch or Oak logs. It is possible to make a selection that will add immeasurably to the appearance of the fireplace at all times and supply quick, clean, odorless, radiant heat with effortless ease. j£& Folio l^umber One
