    I believe this to be a Juwel 6A based on the catalog references here at CCS.
    Reference material:
    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 3

    Because one catalog/brochure is dated 1908, I'm concluding the stove *could* be that old. More accurate dating comments are welcomed and encouraged.

    The stove operates using the principles of a roarer burner with an interesting design of burner head. The vaporizing tubes for these stoves are of very light gauge metal and apparently were designed to be disposable/replaceable at low cost. It is lucky that this stove still retained it's vapo tube.

    The burning pictures below are shown to illustrate the stove at different power levels. In operation, the stove is quieter than a conventional roarer but louder than a silent. In fact, both the "roar" and the "hiss" of the two types are present simultaneously albeit at lower levels. Subjectively, I would compare it's heat output to that of a Primus #100, despite the large burner head.

    The flame plate is from another stove and I will provide links to that stove and also another article which describes the two stoves together in just a moment. I will include some information on the fettling challenges of the two stoves in the article. Stand by for those links in a following post in this thread.

    Enjoy!

    Is the clue in the signature - I saw the Lovett had a similar flame spreader to the Juwel as much as you could tell from the catalogue.

    It would be good & fitting to see an American member turn up a Lovett!

    Hi Gary, What an interesting and elegant stove! Lovely photos.
    The flame shots are great and it is perhaps surprising that such advanced burner designs were around 100 years ago...makes me feel a bit inadequate!

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thanks Ross and George! :D

    Here's the link to the fettling saga of these two:

    Hi Gary, a wonderful stove and great fettle. With all of the great design work from the burner to the pump tube, it looks like something Capt Nemo would have used on the Nautilus.

    Thank you Rick. I think your allusion to Nemo and the Nautilus is apt indeed. I fell in love with the first glance.
    All the best,
    Gary

    Great work Gary!! The Juwel 6 is hands down the most elegant and beautiful kero burner out there. There is something to be said for style!
