    A neat little gasoline burning stove.
    The stand was nickel plated but in poor rusty condition so I have repaint it.
    My opinion is that it would have look better in black.Note the smart design to fold the pan support up for filling it with fuel.

    Alcohol fuelled and not for gasoline surely.

    Stove (tank, burner) component appears to be a clone of a Frary and Clark, most certainly an alcohol stove.

    Yes, I agree with John.

    I have one very similar with the same style burner but without the flip up trivet. It's called an Alcolite.

    Of course it is an alcohol stove. Probably not recommended to try it with gas.

    A date in May 1913 on mine, so yes.
