    A diminutive Paraffin stove of British manufacture, certainly the burner is marked Zora British Pat app.
    Shown here with a Primus 71 for size comparison .
    The box is of very light weight alumin(i)um
    The flame spreader is not original .
    The nipple size is 0.32 mm .
    The pan supports are not original .

    Very nice little stove. :)

    From the style of burner and the paperwork shown in the link I'd be guessing these also had a silent cap set? Would you estimate the caps at about the size of a Primus 5 or smaller, maybe, like a Primus 4? :-k

    Very interesting - thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    So this is where this afternoon has gone :) ..
    Ross pointed me towards it being Parasene & there I found it was also a silent burner ... So I had to try ;)
    Trying Primus No.4 silent burner caps (Cheers BD :) ) & an Ever Bright silent (Origin unknown)

    Whilst operating through its power range the No.4 was balanced .. I think the whole burner head gets too hot .. Glowing outer cap & inner .
    The Ever Bright cap seems almost to have been made for this unusual little burner & provides the most delightful display of rotating blue flamelettes on low & a very healthy display of crystal blue swords when its pumped a little .
    I'm truly delighted with this lil' un :lol:

    There's a few variants on this in this section - the one with a windshield similar to a Svea 123 & a small fixed leg version. Parasene at their finest.
