here's the unknown item

grandma_bonnieFebruary 12, 2008

The brand name is SOLAR made by the Electric Mfg. Co. New York, NY & San Francisco, CA

2 Amps Pat Apr 17.23

115 Volts Serial # 39652

My thoughts is that is may be something to heat up hair curlers as the inside of it appears to be ceramic which is a good conductor of heat.

Does anyone have an idea as to what thi might be?

thing looks like a face on that end. It would be good to have some pictures of it from other angles, does it open? Can't see or tell much from that view Bonnie.

I'm thinking it is a curling iron heater from the 1920s.

That unknown item looks like it could be a heater for burn-in knives. The knives would be used to melt colored lacquer for furniture repair.
