    The stove is marked Buflam Pressure Stove Made in England and has 0348 stamped on base (?date of manufacture). The stove appears to have been used sparingly and not for many years.
    The painted trivet is made of stamped metal and is clipped to top of the legs.
    It has the unusual roarer burner that has been noted before and is marked Buflam Made in England. The central plug, that allows access to the burner nipple, is still present as is the flames ring.

    The pressure relief screw is marked Twigg.

    Hi @seajay interesting stove and unusual burner.

    Charles Twigg & Co. Ltd. was the Manufacturer of the Buflam brand of stoves, which explains the presence of the Twigg name on the air release screw.

    I have never seen an example of this particular roarer burner “in the flesh” but there are two, with great photos in this thread.

    A very interesting find, and one so far from 'home' as well.

    Thanks for the link George, if I'd read that before I'd completely forgotten about it.

    Hi, it is interesting that much later, some of the South Korean stove manufacturers used a very similar approach, to that used by Twigg, to have an adaptable silent/ roarer burner option on some of their stoves:

    Annby No.L747 from 1980s.

    The main body of the stove remains the same and the addition of either a flame-plate, or a silent damper changes the burner from roarer to silent.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
