    The 'Aurora' made by Kenrick seems to have appeared towards and around the very end of WW1, possibly prompted in part by the cutting off of imports from Scandinavia by the unrestricted U-boat campaign which began in 1917. Simply and sturdily made, the Aurora very much copies the pattern of basic pre-war No.1 stoves.

    That is a very rare stove. I have seen only one of them previously - and that is in our Stove Gallery.
