    With its original pan set, though the pot lifter was missing, but easily fabricated from a strip of aluminium

    The pans nest and stow away inside the stove box for storage and transportation

    Stove and pan set feature in this leaflet from the 1930's (Stove Reference Library)

    Norma E14 leaflet


    The concept of a boxed stove and pan set is sound enough, but Barthel made a glorious job of the graphics on the box, celebrating stove ownership

    The 'spring' in the box sides grips the pan set and prevents the pans from falling out with a clatter when the box is opened. Clever thinking Barthel

    The stove itself is pretty conventional for the era but well made and a good performer

    The notice advises the user on the use of the air screw and fuel filler cap components

    Good performer as I said, the flame splaying out with a pot on board

    Drew & Sons kettle is a perfect companion for the stove

    Cool John!

    What a fun little stove!

    I really like how the pots stow away, and the case reminds me of one of these. :lol:

    ;)

    A great stove John and fantastic graphics on the case. I trust of course, that in accordance with graphics, you will keep the stove in the bottom drawer of an antique chest of drawers. I guess that the case was designed to look attractive to the lady of the house.

    Great to see one with the pots. These type of stoves normally leave me cold but this one is one of my favourites with the tin & graphics.

    A cracker! All you need now is a 1920's cyclecar to take it out for a picnic...

    Thanks all!

    Trojandog said,

    Still true today Terry, since it's one of the few stoves that's found a home inside the house and not in the shed!


    Matukat asked,


    Ross already tracked that down in his paperwork when he posted his Stove Ref Gallery example of a Norma E14

    Something I've noticed is that the panel depicting a sailing couple (him in the boat, she on the shoreline preparing a meal) is that she's using a dual burner version of the stove, the Norma 12

    Wow now that’s an awesome alcohol stove! Probably will never find that around my area but I’d sure love a nice example of an alcohol stove with cook set like yours! Beautiful!
