    Hello to the Forum members, I would appreciate your help in order to identify my Primus.

    It was a wedding present to my grandmother, the date code AI in the botom means 1944 as I could know with the Help of this site.

    I suppose the burner was replaced in the past by one alternative brand from a local manufacturer.

    I share a couple of marketing posters, there is rogue Tango called "Metele bomba al primus" something like "Give pump the primus"

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Welcome to CCS @Leandro Scquizzato .

    As you said, it's from 1944 and the burner is not original.
    It's a domestic stove for use in the kitchen.
    It look like it has cooked a lot of meals in its lifetime.
    It could be a model no1 roarer or no5 silent.
    That information would be engraved on the top of the tank but cleaning appears to have removed most of the details.

    Nice family connection. :thumbup:

    That poster was also posted some years ago by Pau-i-amor.

    It Demonstrate the impact of the brand in the popular culture, the tango was a low classes music at that times.
