    This Juwel No.12 2-pint stove seems to be very similar in most respects to the Juwel No.15. The key differences are that, firstly, this is a roarer burner, not a silent burner, and, secondly, that, on this No.12 at least, all of the tank legends except the Juwel name and the number are in Chinese characters!

    Nothing at all of what you can see in the pictures was visible given the thick covering of filth that enveloped the entire stove. What you see now is the remarkable result of a mere 1/2 hour of soaking in a mild citric acid solution, some sensitive attention from a tooth-brush and chamois dry-off:thumbup:
    Can anyone make sense of the Chinese legends (assuming that I have photographed them the right way up:oops:)? And dating, at a loss with that too, maybe the combination of alphabets on the burner might give some clue with that? Help needed!

    Well, a reliable translation of the tank base Chinese inscription is a little underwhelming: it seems that the text here DSC05093txtclose.JPG simply reads 'Made in Germany' :doh:. Still, it is useful to know with certainty:lol:.
    My informant also says that the larger inscription on the top is some sort of non-specific, general, description of the production company.

    Hi Ian, you have an interesting stove there.
    I can't help with the Chinese lettering but for the Russian Cyrillic, I guess the same situation applies as to Swedish-made stoves:

    The Cyrillic inscription on the burner of your stove is in the old orthography, so the burner is likely no later than the late 1930s, and could be considerably earlier.

    The fabricated pan-ring also looks 1920-30s

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
