    An old stove I posted in the old pre-forum galleries on CCSv1/2. It didn't get transferred for some reason as I discovered tonight fixing a reported broken link.

    This French company is more well known for their multi-burner furnaces & blowlamps. Their logo features a 6 burner furnace. I would guess the age of this as pre-1920. It comes in a plain tin-plated box with a brass plate bearing the company name & logo. It also features a glass spirit bottle.

    Tremendous Ross:thumbup: And very interesting to be able to compare the few detail differences between this, the Ultimus 'Standard No.9' and the Ultimus '0' stablemate. Although I don't feel confident to even try to speculate about the possible significance of the points of contrast, it might shed some light if we could see what type of pump rod assembly is fitted to this wonderful example here. Ian.
