    The newly "Fettled" and "Reburn"(ing), A. E. Lovett Model No. 103 Camping and Boating Stove, circa 1910. Completely original, all but for one part! A Rare Bird, indeed! This Stove burns HOT! The nearly invisible flame, turns the only non-original part, the Flamer Spreader "cherry red", in the test firing!

    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. One hundred and six years old and burning like the day it was made. That's what I love about these old stoves. History brought back to life.

    Fantastic before and after shots of a great stove! How long was it in hibernation? Do you know anything of its early history?

    Is the cast iron pan ring an accessory or an original item? I would love one like that!

    Thanks Ben! They always amaze me, as well! From an age, when products were built to last!

    Thanks for the praise ! I don't know how long it had been sitting idle, or it's past history. Wish I did! I purchased the Stove, at an antique shop in Rhode Island, U.S.A. The Cast Iron Pan Ring, was original equipment, on this brand of Stove. Although very cool, I've been warned, to not use it, due to it's rarity and although cast iron, the cast iron's tendency to be very fragile, if dropped! Strictly for display purposes only then! Can't imagine trying to replace, or replicate it! I've competed the restoration and a test fire and the Stove, in all it's glory, will now be cherished and retired. Better safe, than sorry!

    Nice work Stovost,
    Does your fuel cap have the same NY logo as bernies Lovett ?
    Interesting these Lovetts since so few have been found. I wonder where they were made and where they were sold.Many of the Juwel stoves were sold in Boston and some sold from a New York distributer. Many of the Juwel stove sold on eBay are from the New England area.
    Also what was the relationship with Lovett, Primus and Juwel and why are they are one of the few to use that Juwel 6 type flame plate and special burner.
    It's my belief that many were sold to boaters as the ads are often found in boating magazines from that era.

    Doug, the Fuel Cap on my Stove is slightly different. Here's a pic!

    All I can tell you about the Stove, is that I uncovered, in an Antique Shop in Greenville, RI, U.S.A. I have no knowledge of it's history, or how long it had been sitting idle, as it was just another item in a dealers booth. From the members who've replied, I'm feeling very lucky, to have found this rather rare stove. I've restored it to the best of my abilities and have test fired it after doing so. With it's rarity being explained to me, I've chosen to retire it and it will be cherished and given it's due respect in my collection.
