    Nice Lux stove! It seems to have Svea trivet and outer cap in burner is made by Danish Ginge. Lux company became Electrolux after electrical appliances hit the market. Optimus acquired stove manufacturing from Lux after they decided to move onto other business.

    Here is some info about No. 16 Lux: Lux No. 16

    Most of Lux non-electric products became Optimus in 1917 but some lamps were made as Lux until at least 1920 and the general detail design of your stove looks pretty much like 1910-20 - later trivet and burner are quite common on standard size stoves made before 1950's.

    Welcome Tadas. A set of new seals and some cleaning should get this old girl fired up. Congratulations. :thumbup:
