It's actually a stainless steel replica vent. I will post more on it later.

sorry guys havnt responded in a couple days doing that thing that pays the bills. I am going to take some bar keepers friend and 00 steel wool to the ash catcher and legs and see if I can get some shine back into them I will clean the outside with some dawn and a scotch brite pad and I don't know about the wheels they look as they were red in color but I don't know how to get the color back out will research cleaners I guess any idea?
i almost have all my grails but waiting for that yellow to miraculously appear maybe in ny.

It would not surprise me if those wheels are/were red. Seems before 1958, the wheels had either red or white rims. The 0000 steel wool always works like a charm on the porcelain and the pan and legs. Also Mothers Mag polish really cleans up the legs and the pans. The legs look like they are steel.  :)

Wood bleach and linseed oil bring the original paint back on rusted metal. Would be your best bet on the wheels.
