    The Lux No.1 here has the globe logo that dates it to 1906-1914.

    The filler cap shows evidence of a long and hard life:

    Stamping on underside raises interesting questions. There is no evidence of the more usual round 'akt. bol. lux' inscription, only a single stamped letter 'S'.

    One other Lux stove currently on the gallery has this type of marking (the Lux No.1 posted by Gunsoo). Is it possible that this would have been done to clear existing stock immediately after Lux stove production had been taken over by Bildt in 1914?
    The burner is not original, actually a 'Prince', but the stove nevertheless still works very well:
