    I got this described as a Primus today for @$18. But further examination revealed that it is a Ginge.

    Hello Henrik, nice find :thumbup: How big is it? Could you put another familiar stove beside it for size comparison? Looks like it is a collectible.

    I think it's wery collectible as well because as i have heard the Ginge brand was only used for marketing in Denmark.

    Here it is with a 123

    The avaliability or lack thereof of stoves in Denmark has a "funny" explanation.
    Denmark is small and fairly densly populated so infrastructure is well devoloped ie. 95% of all homes had electricity installed by the end of the 50's.
    Camping in Denmark is defined as going to a devloped camping site with water/toilet and cooking facilities.
    Because Denmark is so small it was impossible to get further than 10km away from another human being, so small hiking stoves did not catch on.

    In the end of the 19'th century poor factory workers in the city were malnurished because of the lack of homegrown veggies. A government plan ensured that needy workers could get/rent a small piece of land (75-150sqm) to grow veggies. Usually theese garden colonies was placed in cycling distance from the big city.
    Many/most built a small house and thus got a "summer residence" but, no electricity or sanitary installations. Hense the plethora of kitchen size stoves.

    Hi Henrik

    Nice one there !! yes you are correct, they only made stoves for the Danish market, and only for twenty years. I have one of them in my waiting to fettle pile...

    I like the leg assembly.

    I'm a bit partial to a stovette nothing fancy nor bits to assemble.

    Plunk it down prime and pump.

    Chunk it the box with billy and fry-pan for next feed

    Hey Henrik,
    I bought one of these the other day from a lady in middle Jutland, but it's a roarer. No indication of the age of the damned thing, bits missing, dings all over, rusty pot stand and it's over-soldered - probably repaired at some time - so I'm taking it apart to make it more presentable.
    Btw I see you're bidding for the Primus from Bjaeverskov. I hope you get it. Is it a no.5?

    The burn is quite ok for a stove left for umpteen years before lightning
