    A very French looking stove. A sturdy enameled frame but thin tank and a weak burner.
    I don't know about the manufacturer, guess there were a number producing the same style of stoves.

    Staring colours, I could have the food burnt instead of cooked! Wonderful.

    @Stonehopper Yes, yours is also a good example. Those shades and tranlucent colors over the roughness of cast iron, with the vitreous layer on top, are something special.
    Really like them.
    Cheers

    @optipri
    Well, now that I've managed to upload images, I can send you the ones that I have of my Radius #24 you wanted to see.

    These are from the seller because I tore it down to pieces to fettle, and discovered that someone, in a previous fettling decided that these washers (catalog 1952 Radius 24 piece#10/10) were superfluous. So I'm trying to make them without a lathe, just by hand.
    Anyway here are the photographs that I owe you. :oops:

    As I said, I don't have the matching spill-plate. But it's a huge stove, even by today's kitchen stoves standards.

    Sorry for the late reply, Enrique. That is a stunning stove. I have never seen one before and really wish I would be able to put my hands on one.
    It is huge and must be called the big brother of the #12.

    Don't worry @optipri . After I posted it, I realized that it was weird to do it in your post of a beautiful french stove :oops:... But I was influenced by the fumes of the "happy hour" :-$
    I love the cast iron and if it's enameled, more!
    Cheers.
    Enrique
