    @snwcmpr , Ken got 'er fired up, no powerhouse, but it does work

    Interesting thing is the two rows of holes on the underside of the burner to keep the preheat going on the burner support with the wick inside! 20210828_135624.jpg 20210828_135647.jpg

    Ol' gal's a keeper, possibly
    all of 110 years old!

    Yeah, a great stove.
    I believe that it was intended for heat, not necessarily cooking. A chafing dish stove, or a percolator.
    And, it was "Fancy" looking when new.
