    I believe this heater is from 1920s based on searching for the patent date. I did not find a patent date on the heater but 1921 is what I came up with when searching for Humphrey Radiantfire No. 14. I
    It is 19" tall and gas powered. Probably not all that easy to hook up a gas line so the electric versions became more popular. Would be fun to see if I can get it to work with propane, supposedly it is easy to switch it from natural gas to propane. Yes dangerous to use propane inside.
    Looks like it had a porcelain coating at one time.
    In the meantime I am taking a vacation day this week. Take a guess at what I will do.
    A-Go to the beach.
    B-Go antiquing
    C-Visit Family Members
    D-Do volunteer work

      NO DOUBT C right after D and before A, So did you find anything?
      I think you just need to change the inlet valve and maybe? the nozzle however it might be hard to find a small enough nozzle (out-put) that fits.
      As long as you have no leaks and it burns 99% + it should be okay, but maybe having a carbon monoxide detector would be a good idea.
      I had a slightly larger oil drip heater in a garage that worked good but smelled bad at first, I also had a oil furnace in the house so the heating oil was handy and cheaper then propane at the time anyhow, Even could use diesel fuel if it ran out in the middle of the night.

      Thank you very much PP. Vacation day is tomorrow so I will let you know which option it was then.
      I was hoping by easy it meant an adaptor. Luckily I have a carbon monoxide detector. Chanced are it will just sit around looking pretty.
