    Mirus is the successor of Pinchard & Moreau in 1926
    Here is a stove which is not very known. I found only a little flyer.
    it runs with kerosene and is fitted with a cleaning needle system, but I don't find the patent.
    I had to replace the tank which was badly stressed.
    The kerosene pipe under the tank was too long. It needed to be replace by a shorter.

    Great to see that example. I’ve a Mirus with a larger square frame.

    You’ll see another example, missing the stove frame, at the top of the photo. I featured it HERE. Both had stress cracks in their font, repaired in the one I use with a generous overlay of lead solder.

    Very nice indeed - love those “different” kind of odd constructions!
