    This rare double burner came from the USA. I got it from a collector of tins & it's easy to see why it appealed to him. I have not seen a model like this in any of the Optimus catalogues I have. Although made in Sweden the tin clearly shows that this is marketed by Optimus in the USA. The instructions on each end panel of the tin are in English & Spanish. There is a strong possibility that this was an export only model. The only reference I have seen to this stove is on a 1920's advert from Australia. Link
