Another Packaway - This arrived, in a pretty filthy state, packed in a tin full of cobwebs (and powdered rust) but, after a few hours cleaning, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the fount did not have a single dent or ding. The flame ring, too, was minus the usual dents and chips so it looks like the stove was well cared for before it was retired. The small feet are non-standard but I added these to stop the rough tube ends from scratching surfaces as the stove will likely be used indoors on occasion. Out of the box. After a bit of spit and polish. Burner. "Made in England" and showing the removable screw which gives a straight access to the nipple. I thought the reserve cap was missing until I twigged it normally lives on the pump knob when not in use ! I polished me bottom .... Beneath the main Valor stamp you can see "5K". Could this be a date stamp? Stove out in the wild, fully fettled - all seals and pips replaced. Doin' what a stove oughta do. Powerful flames. ????? The final picture might seem out of place but there is a tenuous link ………….. It is a drawing of a head of department at The Valor Company and was drawn at some time around the turn of the 20th. Century, probably when the Valor factory was located in Rocky Lane. The artist, a Mr. ?. Popplewell - the father of my late brother in law - was an unusual character and a onetime friend/drinking buddy of the young Edward Bourne-Jones. In between his numerous art related ventures (which usually failed) Mr. Popplewell would take a job at the Valor factory until he had acquired enough funds to start his next new endeavour! The photograph does not do the drawing any justice but is the best I can do with my limited photographic skills (the picture was done by pencil point stipple and is really quite sharp and detailed but it’s framed beneath glass).
