I just acquired a Sunflower stove too. The fuel cap, pump cap and fount bottom are marked Radius Sweden. It has a silent burner. This one is the discus type with removable pot stand legs.
Hi @phaedrus42 A nice Sunflower branded Radius stove ( Radius No. 19 type) probaby dating from the 1930s if the trivet belongs to this particular stove.
The trivet is characteristic of a 1930s style which Radius used on many of their stove models:
Hi , have a read of these threads re. Link between Oil Cos. And Stove Manufacturers:
So it looks like the Sunflower brand and name might have disappeared by 1931.
Thanks for the info, Kerophile!
