It looks like an old gas/propane heater, at least the outside of it.

Looks like a light bulb protector re-purposed to be a plastic bag holder. What are the dimensions of the thing?

I think Jeff got it right. But I suspect it's not OEM for a '47.

Got any more pictures of that great old 40's model?

Yep, inside would be a ceramic "block" that the gas flame heats up, and the heat is radiated out into the room.

Most houses down south had one like it in the bathroom, to provide heat while taking a bath.

There would have been bigger ones in the rest of the rooms in the house.

They were quite popular in Texas where it didn't get very cold in the winter. We had them in our first house in Longview, Texas back in the '60s
