Default Belling Radiant Zephyr

Hi, Can anyone here tell me anything about this heater? I can't find it by this name on old catalogues?

Thank you.

I can tell you it isn't a Radiant Zephyr, because that's a convector with a radiant bar incorporated.
It certainly looks 'Belling', but I can't find a name for it. It would be in the same range as the Adam Coal (743B) and the Celtic (753B).
Perhaps it isn't Belling at all. What does the Fireglow bulb look like?
Does anyone have the Berry catalogues?

Thanks Brigham.

These were the only details that we had with the heater at my grandfather's but unable to find anything else. I'm pretty sure it has Belling on it. I'll have another look around it when I go there. I really appreciate your response.

Thank you!

I agree, the curved reflector and position of the heating element is similar to other Belling models. It's certainly a better looking device than the nasty looking things we had in the 1980s!

I'm still trying to find what it is.
It MUST be Belling, surely?

Default Berry Magicoal

Hi Everyone,
I have finally found that my fire is a Berry Magicoal and I wondered if anyone can help advise about the model or closer idea of it's age?

I've tried to research it myself and not very good at it!

There was a bit of a clue in the last photo, wasn't there?
Still, a good excuse to revisit the Belling catalogues.

Yes! Sorry about that but thank you for looking. It's lovely and still in working order but seriously thinking about selling it as I have 3 young children and I wouldn't feel safe with it on when they're around!
Any idea where I may get interest for it?
And don't suggest selling my children instead haha

A wise decision, you'd never forgive yourself if the unthinkable happened, although there are fireguards. The usual advice is eBay, to get the highest price. P&P is a problem though, as is collection only. You can sell through the Forum, but as you know, the rules state that a fixed asking price must be stated.
