    Here is the 2-burner version of this stove. Nickel plated brass with a lot of bent parts. Must have been a very complicated tool to make this one. It is in one upper and one lower part screwed together at the sides. The left and right are the same, fixed together by a riveted mid part.

    Really an "steam-punk" artistic artifact!

    Wonderful. Congratulations Bo!

    A lovely stove made in times when beauty and elegance went hand-in-hand with functionality.

    Just imagine how much it would cost to make something like this the same way they did then?
