    This arrived this morning! It doesn’t seem to be a common stove so I thought I would share

    That is a nice kit. I’ve not seen a Howes & Burley Corona.

    Cheers

    It certainly is not common! In fact the the only model ever seen by most is the oddly plumbed No.5.
    The font used on the tank side seems to compare closely with legends found on Howes & Burley blowlamps dating from the early 1920s. A very interesting find, and to have the full boxed set is just wonderful!

    Thank you for the comments! I do find it interesting finding unusual stoves! I’ll have a look at the number 5’s and also look up the blow lamps! I wonder if there is anyway to find out the age of this stove?

    Nice find, congratulations :thumbup:
    It certainly looks like it has a good age to it.

    Good find Aaron.

    The number of stove makes amazes me. It really shows how popular the humble paraffin pressure stove was. Legendary dependability from Everest to Antarctica. I think for economy, serviceability and reliability they hold their own even today.

    Regards, Jaime.
