    Nice Label! Nice Find! Great Stoves, aren't they ? I found mine in New Hampshire, USA. Where'd you find yours?

    North Tonawanda, NY (Western NY) is where I found this beauty. The instructions on the bottom of this old girl just floored me and I knew I would pay any price they wanted!

    Here is a companion "alcohol stove". This one looks like it may be older because it is a gravity feed - there is no pump. The cast iron ring is stamped identically to your vapor lamp, reading "Patented April 20th 1909".

    It is called an Alcohol-Stove in these original instructions.
