    This one is exactly the same as in this post. It seems to have been used a lot, burner has been replaced and some dents in the tank. You can see from the worn pump tube cap that it has been made many thousands of strokes.

    When I started fettling it, I thought it was a hopeless case. It was covered with a number of layers with sticky black painting so the embossed name was almost not visible. But after getting all paint stripped off it shoved to be in very good shape.

    Question is what number it is, I haven't find it in any catalogue. Obviously many similarities with the Optimus Gloria so maybe an ancestor of that?

    But is also looks a bit like Lux no1, that is a bit more fancy with ornaments. Maybe a successor of that stove?

    Sorry Bo you don't get any comment on your lovely and rare LUX stove. If I would be a "Stovie" that is something I would want to have in my collection.
    Good work on that one!

    Beautiful brass and blue, and I'm green with envy.

    It's been said before, Bo, you find a lot of interesting stoves.
