    Hi here are some images of a 2-pint Parasene collapsible stove, fitted with a silent burner. This is a paraffin-fuelled stove manufactured in the Great Britain for Parasene:

    Someone I work with has just brought one of these in to work today. Is there any way to date them?

    Hi, There is no date coding on these. stoves so examining dated catalogues, or Patent dates of components and fittings is one way of estimating manufacturing date.
    I think the above stove probably dates fron the early 1960s.
    Have a look at this thread on a very similar Parsene. stove fitted with a roarer burner:

    The one above appears to have a Primus filler cap fitted...

    The one I've seen today has a blank (no text) filler cap like the one on the stove you just linked to. Interesting though that the tank on the stove in the link doesn't have the indented text, the one here at work does.

    I'm getting it going for him, so I'll take a couple of pictures once it's working.
