It would be nice to see the back side of the hang tag to see the complete instructions.

Ms. Cramer,
Thank you! You list the hang tag as "undated". My research showes it is 1894 - 1905. Before that they didn't make the heaters. After that, they merged with Standard Oil and an updated style of heaters was produced, finally ending production of the new style heater in 1982.
