    Hãhnel 'Perfektus' No.10, date uncertain, but possibly early 1920s as the riser has no hex for assembly/disassembly unlike those shown in later catalogues. The riser and tank fitting are also odd in having plain surfaces and in relying entirely on basic heat-proof washers for the seal. The filler/pressure release set up is different to other examples in the gallery. Other variants have either a combined pressure release and filled cap (link), or a combined filler/travel cap and a standard pressure release screw (link). This current example has a more basic arrangement of filler cap, with the Hãhnel name in relief on one side, and a standard pressure release screw:

    The pump assembly hosts a normal NRV twinned with a simple back-stopped pump cup arrangement. The most interesting feature is the lock-off tab on the inside face of the pump rod knob. The lock tab can be located into a cut-out in the pump tube cap and rotated into a machined groove, similar to what would be used for an internal circlip, to hold the rod in place for travel and to provide limited protection against NRV leakage:

    The tin is original and rather taller than most 1-pint stove tins to accommodate the height of the fixed feet. It is also rather beaten up, but still quite functional:

    And the stove itself is effectively functional:

    The tub is defiantly a Landy, could you tell us more about it. Looks like a great restoration project. Oh yes nice stove and it seems quite unusual.
    Oh Landys, as I have a 11a LWB on club reg I am interested in it. I see them a lot and have to restrain my self. Vintage cars are like stoves , a bit addictive. I now have three on the road a good spread, 1924, 1949, and 1968. Some others not restored , comes to mind 1916 and 1926.
    Should stop rambling on.

    Cheers
