    Hi, here are some photos of a Primus No.210 stove which I was given as a gift in the year 2000.
    It is a T2 marked stove, so dates from 1929:

    That's really a nice one, George. It appears to be in *excellent* condition, particularly when it's age is considered. Thanks for posting photos of her.

    Wonderful pictures of a nice classic stove.
    I believe, with Primus living up to its name, the model 210 was the trendsetter followed by a vast family of 1-pinters. The detailing on these oldies still make me go soft. Thank you, George!

    Hi Yonadav, I have had this stove operating when I first received it but It is now "prettied up" and I am not keen to hav to clean it again.
    Best Regards,

    Hi George

    A beautiful example of the 210.

    I think the 210 is my favourite all-round stove.
    Great shape, burns paraffin, burns very hot, tank big enough to cook a few meals on one filling, can take small and medium sized pans, collapses to a small size.

    AND. . . is utterly reliable if looked after.
