    I got this at an auction and would like to know a little history. Date of manufacture, and any history of the company. Thanks for your help.

    My best estimate of the Norma 111 is the 1920s.
    Certainly by 1934 the Barthel double burner alcohol stoves had two fuel tanks and a less elaborate stove frame.
    The design of your Norma 111 stove had been around for many years as can be seen from this extract from a 1908 brochure.

    Sir, thank you for enlightening me on my find. I generally buy and sell, but this may be a keeper if I can get it to burn.
