    Hi all,

    Here is my example of the very rare Lilor 5017 "Tourisme" camping stove, made only in the years 1928 and 1929. A tiny 1/2 pint kerosene stove with a lipstick type burner.

    This is the second ever collapsible stove, made by Lilor. The first is the 5015/16 "Rond" kerosene stove, with a Primus silent type burner setup, which was launched in 1925 and still sold in 1930.

    A funny thing is that the stove displayed on the Lilor 5017 tin box lid is not the 5017 stove, but the earlier 5015 Rond stove, which is quite different.

    I was happy to get a complete set with a wind shield, spirit can, spanner and cleaning needle handles. Fired up nicely after pre heating and was a bit "noisy" in working mode.

    Great to have this Lilor stove as a complement to all my Lilor lamps.

    Excellent find and post, thank you.

    Interesting that the lipstick vapouriser was equipped with a removable jet nipple as standard, evident from the illustration in the instructions. A sensible design feature, though going the whole distance and equipping it with a more efficient tubular burner as a Manaslu 96 has would have been a better idea perhaps.

    Is the jet orifice of 0.23mm or 0.32mm diameter I wonder? Even the Primus 100 with a larger lipstick vapouriser than that of a ‘96’ has a 0.23mm jet orifice.

    Thanks John @presscall

    I can just make it with a 0,20 needle; can´t get through with a 0,22. Probably jet orifice of 0,20/0,21!

    A very fine stove well presented!
    Somebody corrected the French (and German) word "pétrole" (= kerosene) with "paraffin". Paraffin in a French (or German) text means the wax-like product which is used to make cheap candles.

    The name LILOR comes from "Liotard frères, rue de Lorraine 22, Paris." It's very uncommon, to use the street-name in a company name. Obviously the telegraphic address gave the name.

    That's what 'paraffin' means in the US, too. A wax, commonly used to seal home-canning jars of fruits or vegetables.

    Or in the 'wax method' of plucking a duck or goose....
