    It will probably become decor. The seller wrote back and said that he thinks that it used kerosene to heat water which flowed in and out of the chamber. I just think it is sooo neat! Great conversation piece. I'm going to see it tomorrow.

    yep, they are very nice looking, I can't imagine trying to hatch anything in kerosene fueled incubator, unless of course electricity is not available. It is neat looking

    Had a friend that had one just like it about 15 years ago
    He used it as a corner table in his living room.
