    When I first saw this stove I thought it was from the 50:s, something similar to Optimus 535. But then I realized it is much bigger and from the 30:s. It measures 63x34x18 and the weight is more that my household scale manage, probaly 15kg or so.
    I have not before-photos but it was terrible dirty when I got it and someone had spray silver paint overall underneath. Now cleaned and with new heat resistant paint on it. The top is surprisingly well preserved for its age.
    Here, on the fantastic Ultimheat museum, a brochure from 1937 shows it.

    A very nice Lilor Luxe 95 stove, Bo. As you say ….. a very modern 50,s style stove already from the 30,s.
    Attached you find a Lilor catalogue page from April 1937 with that Lilor Luxe 95 stove; here also with a parts list and diagram.
    I have added the price list entry for that "Luxe" stove ….475 Franc

    A beautiful stove
    I am wondering about prices. it seems that 475 francs would be quite a sum for anyplace during depression years
