    In the interest of full disclosure, I picked this up at an estate sale to resell. But as often happens, I start researching what I bought and end up getting interested in it.
    That's the part that kinda bugs the mrs., lol.
    I've spent some time reading here, and it appears I stumbled upon a Juwel 6 version of some sort. Completed with case and funnel. I cant find any, anywhere that have this configuration.
    Are these parts original, or a mix? Did that funnel and screen come with it?
    Can we tell which model it is?

    Others more knowledgeable will chime in but browsing the SRG it looks like you suggest a #6.

    Juwel 6 (complete)

    Old stoves sometimes have many iterations of a particular model. They were works in progress. Constantly changing parts to make them run better or produce them with less cost.

    Quite a nice stove to kick off a collection! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Jerry

    The 'Juwel No.6 in a case' in the 1908 catalogue looks remarkably close to what you have:

    It even appears to have the same burner, which would make yours a '6A' as opposed to a '6B'. Several different burner options were offered over the years and it is always a very good find if you are lucky enough to have a complete original burner of the type in your photos. Definitely a stove worthy of some care and respect
    Ian:thumbup:

    The cast iron trivet seems to be a slightly later proprietary trivet from later date than that catalogue photo. It may be a later replacement, or, depending on the actual date of your particular outfit, it may simply be that the trivet supplied in the 'cased' outfits was changed over time.

    Thank you for the info!

    Now I need to decide whether I'll ever get to it (Soooo many small projects I never get to. Starting with 5 old kerosene heaters, lol), or get over it and sell it.

    Besides, I'm not sure I want the risk of screwing it up.

    Thanks again!

    A good idea to take time and wait until you know more of how to inspect it and later fettle it or repair it if needed.
    One added note, the fact that you have the flame plate is good. Many times they are missing.
