MANY DESCA details have been shared over last 14 years (search result is 5 pages!, a bit much to review). Purpose of this discussion (not "my" discussion)… I've collated details (from the masses) and post here in one place. These details are only now available with benefit of hindsight. The credit is due to our membership especially those involved in research of German makers (w/challenging complicated content). I apologize in advance (to my critics), my delivery will be flawed and not "proper". readers can focus on the content shared, make of it what you will and members PLEASE do build on it. For DESCA currently there are more questions than answers, in time membership will improve that I am sure. This post might help that effort. Wenn es für deutsche Mitglieder effektiver ist, die deutsche Fertigungshostory auf Deutsch zu diskutieren, begrüße ich das und bitte nur darum, dass die wesentlichen bestätigten Details anschließend auf Englisch geteilt warden. IF German members find it more effective to discuss German manufacturing hostory in German, I welcome that and just request that the significant confirmed details be subsequently shared in English. House & factory Hainewalde credit @Marlen Dehmel source -> link oh, WELCOME Marlen !!!! So nice of you to join discussions, your early comments are intriguing to say the least. Thank you. *G.H. Wünsche, Hainewalde | Sachsen Metallwaren und Siebfabrik seit 1875, [the Desca maker origin. metalware and _____factory since 1875] others can confirm as it may not be accurate for me to describe Wünsche as parent company (again, as with all of the following, it can be complicated). *credit Marlen and @dusan for DESCA document Nr.57 (early 1936 / may be pre1936). Dušan's 2017 post --> link <-- source is the same document (below). At any rate, this may be the only "DESCA" document posted to-date (total of 4 pages, is all we got?) and we are thankful for that. The cover: it seems sooo much might be learned from the 4 pages, meanwhile being mindful, this is very preliminary discussion, and (just so far) content may span 1875 - c1936 in Hainewalde. It "lists" models: 1, 2, 3, 2E, 3D, 7, 8, 14, 15, 16 and Illustrates models: 1, 2E, 3E, 3D and 14 on the cover (14's interesting tank & knob). Also on the cover is the wording "Tresor" and here we go credit @gieorgijewski Tresor image source link --------------------------------- Re: the Tresor above and examples that will follow I can not / do not assign an order nor ID model Nr.s. Dimensions are not given and can not assume they are same (they look same). EXAMPLES I share are SIMILAR and shown for purpose of understanding: trends changes made and how/when/where Desca stoves developed. Aware there are many other quite different DESCA models. Here we go, in the mix are examples absent maker's mark @presscall stove , the only marking is Nur für Spiritus (/ Only for Spirit) and his surely looks a match to the Desca/"Tresor" (shown above). I share Lance's Desca stove which represents different tank / design but also has only Nur für Spiritus on the frame. It does have "DESCA" on burner. BTW @matteo stove resembles Lance's as well I share here the @optipri 3 stoves A. differs from above examples. B. we see "Made in GDR" added, so post 1949. At this time I share war related comment (which is confusing): FWIW my impression is Hainwalde would be subject to not only NAZI control but periods of Soviet and also British occupation, at least that is the impression I get (again, this being preliminary). C. the parts have changed, refer to link for detail. I share a couple 2 burners for kicks Arjan's stove seen here TY @ajvuik and J Snow's below, source. NOS and FWIW general use of "GDR" spans 1949 - 90. I do not imply DESCA's were made as late as 1990 but the box for Snow's stove, strikes me, as most recent (of examples I've reviewed). While "production end" topic is raised does anyone have an idea when/where "Desca" stove production may have ended? @Marlen Dehmel [above we see Desca's pre1936 factory origin is re begin production, begs question when/where is end production] thx omc PS Confession time, my review/collation is limited to details on CCS. I've too many irons in the fire myself. I encourage and do hope members build on the above details and, collectively, we fill in missing puzzle pieces of our impressive DESCA stoves!
