    That's probably the most comfortable pump knob to use of any stove I've seen. What a beauty!

    I agree, Ben. Fact is that most pump knobs are too small and absolutely not ergonomic. You get blisters on the tumb after 50 strokes.:cry:

    @z1ulike @optipri

    I agree with you 100%.
    Most pump knobs are a pain in the 'thumb'. :lol:

    This is such a "rare" stove that I think that it is the only one ever made.It is maybe someone's homemade stove made of a pressure lamp. Thumper

    Certainly the only one here but Im not convinced its homemade. The font is the same as there lantern but Tilly made a stove from a lantern font so thats not proof it is an aftermarket modification. I see repairs to the filler and left hand leg but the right hand leg looks untouched. That leg was not attached by your average handyman with a soldering iron. Also those legs are quite old and rather more ornate than they need to be Also they are a good fit to the font.
    I think it came from the factory but if thats the case where are the rest of these lovely stoves

    The pump knob is the same design type as some old Sievert circa 1910 blow lamps and some other German stoves I have seen. A Hasag stove someone bought off ebay a few years ago had that type.
    I have never seen legs like that on any stove which might mean they are original .Maybe it was a prototype?
    What brand burner does it have?

    The burner and the risertube is not the same thread. This is definitely homemade. They have sealed with tin maybe. The burner is Svea .

    Even if it's a homemade it's a nice piece of stoving history! During "old days" when they had some kind of parts to make stove they put parts together and got a working stove. They didn't care if all parts were original or fully compatible they just wanted to get working stove...
