Default Re: Belling Champion Query

Winter draws on, and a No.2, 79, 82A, 83A, 91A and 92A are occupying various rooms here for use as required. I also have, not yet in use, a No.1 of very early manufacture. As the photos show, there's no ventilation on the upper base, so deep-pile carpets would be a definite no-no: and nothing underneath, neither has there ever been, to protect wandering fingers from getting a nasty shock, on account of which I'm in two minds about ever using the thing at all in spite of the household having no untrained occupants. Does anyone happen to know whether it would once have had, as every other Champion I've seen does, a mesh guard at the top?
