Nice stove, and what a pump!!
Love the shape of that fount!
Yes, I can see why it got the dent. It is such a nice looking stove, it got used. That pump is 'out standing' so to speak.

Is full of dents unfortunately. This stove was used in the war here in Malta and when the war was over it was left in a shelter under an old house. A friend find it few days ago
He's a beauty (definitely a male) and wonderful you have such a fascinating (and known) history/provenance behind it.
Hi Mta what a unusual and rare beauty, the pump not only being larger compared to other makes and models, but mounted at about 45degrees on the top of the tank.
But I would imagine a easier and more practical way to pump a stove.
Yup SMoulson - definitely a male!
Surely nearly everyone can see that.
A great looking stove with a very prominent pump housing.
It obviously has given great and long service and is now in the hands of someone who will care for it in its old age.
Thanks Brian for your nice comment I am very happy with the new family member it's a very unusual stove. Best regards Mta Malta
Thanks shagratork yes she is in a safe place. Now best regards from Malta
In case you didn't see this, your model stove (Juwel #6) is shown drawn in the 1908 Brochure .
So yours could easily date to that time. Later (1920+) references, those I've seen, no longer list your model and the 'newer' ones aren't designed with the sharply tapered founts and protruding (VERY happy to see you) pump cylinders of the earlier models. Speculating here, but perhaps the tapered founts were problematic in weight distribution on the legs once the cook pot was set in place and the legs prone to separate from the tank as a result of the force/pressure?
It appears that Juwel also offered the UFO style outer caps for specialized silent burners. Akin to the those made by Radius (# D437/537), Primus (R118), Optimus (208), etc(?).
1908 is one of the earliest instances I've seen of these unique burners, I wonder which company developed and marketed them first?
edit: Is the roarer burner on your stove marked Juwel or has it been replaced with another manufacturer's product?
Hi SMolson thank you very much for the link. I really appreciate. Best regards Mta
