    2 pint 3 legger made < 1919 as far as can tell. Before they sold out to Optimus.

    Came like this

    Note Burner and the pump cap are NOT original but the rest seems to be. Has a very deep intent in the primer cup. maybe it was a silent stove but the ones I tried where to long for this too be. Maybe they where a little squatter who knows.

    Anyway enjoy the pics.

    Well done Bruce, and I really like your new avatar.

    But you got it wrong with the Optimus deal! That took place in 1914, so your stove should be built before that, not 1919.
    And the logo also show us that it can't be made earlier than 1906, since this was the year when they placed the upper part of our earth globe in the already existing symbol with their fantastic paraffin lamp.

    G'day Bruce. I have an observation on the gap between the top of the burner and the top of the pan-support/base of pan.
    On these early stoves the pan-holders were made of cast-iron, rather than pressed steel. As a result the pan sat higher relative to the top of the burner.

    @barrabruce looking carefully at your photos I can't see any sign of the expected external NRV fitting. Could your stove be an internal-NRV sibling to this stove? (with all of the intendent problems with dating raised by @abbahco1)
