    Hi all
    Here is my cast enameled Primus stove 54SE
    Seems to have been anly produced for the french market. I didn't found what french firm could have produced this stand, but sure this is french because you can see (marque déposée/registered mark) on the stand. Perhaps JOLP ?
    Very good stove from 1936, easy to fettle and quick to hot

    Who knows what SE means ?

    Looks very much like a Jolp made stand to me.
    Good luck with your research.
    Cheers Nick

    If it not was made in 1936, I would say it is the domain name for Sweden, just a few years before internt.
    But meanwhile SE has been used much earlier in ordinary post service so why not?
    Anyway, I really like these enamelled cast oron stands.

    Hi Bo
    I found the meaning in 1929 french catalogue
    SE means "Socle Emaillé" for enameled stand
    SB means "Socle Brut" for non enameled stand or
    rough stand

    I never seen rough cast iron stand, it should be very rusty nowadays [-(

    Not necessarily. Cast iron responds to stove polish, enamel can easily crack and chip off.
