    I am not sure this is made in Germany but I suppose so from the embossed text.
    Guess it is quite old, early 1900 or so.
    Frame of cast iron and tank of steel.
    I really like the ornamentations and the style of the control wheel, it is a real art.

    Really a beauty, optipri. Cast iron gives her real excellence.

    Cheers

    So the tank on mine has probably been replaced, a bit sad. The only differernce I can see compared to yours is the text on the front lip.
    Now I have to search for the right tank. Believe that will be a challange.

    ... and the control wheel
    How so?
    I'm not convinced it's not already the original fuel tank. There's a close resemblance to the Gerson Boehme Rosenthal model, true, but there are differences to justify not turning it into an approximate copy surely.
    Not all G-B-H stoves were alike.
