    This arrived this morning, refreshed the leather in WD40, got a little prick of the nipple, paraffin. Fired up lovely.
    I thought the legs may not have been original, but I am sure they are.
    The cast iron trivet has got a couple of cracks in it, but that not surprising.
    Any idea on the date ?

    Hi Ian, you have a lovely Juwel No.21 with an impressively powerful flame-pattern.
    The development of 'feet' styles in Juwel No21 stove seems to have followed the same path as other stove manufacturers; starting with bun-feet, progressing to short tubular ones and finally ending up with folding feet.
    I have two Juwel 21s:

    These were tentatively dated to the early 1930s, as folding feet were introduced shortly afterwards:

    That would suggest that your stove could be from around the 1910/20s.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Couple more pictures since I got the burner head off.
    The spirit cup is steel, and originally brass plated.

    Kerophile - I feel as if I am playing for the English cricket team, getting all these high scores.

    Hikin_jim - Its nice when a stove comes together and a good flame is achieved.

    Hi Ian, several of the British stove manufacturers used brass-plated steel for their spirit-caps and flame-rings during and just after WW2, as a result of metal shortages.
    Your Juwel No.21 stove dates from around WW1, I wonder whether similar shortages then led to the use of steel for their spirit-cups.

    This Juwel No.1 which I have has a steel flame-ring:

    As does this later Juwel No.17:
