George Nakashima Radiator Covers


Lot 1136: 2 - 53" x 20" x 7"


When the congregation of St. Martin of Tours in New Hope, PA moved to their new building in 2007, they took most of the wood worked by their most famous late parishioner, George Nakashima, with them. The oak pews were sold at Freeman's in Philadelphia.

And now the walnut radiator covers have found their way to the market. If you have been waiting for just the right covers for the state-of-the-1961 art radiators in your chapel-sized, mid-century living room, your prayers have been answered.
