    Hi this is a stove I have just found! I was wondering if there any way to date it?
    I really like the bun type feet! Any advice would be great! Thanks 63970DD4-7F2F-413D-91C5-641B3D88E092.jpeg CEA75385-4021-4A91-AF7F-5CBEAE44DB11.jpeg D17F6694-260E-44D1-A1DE-38D2016BA089.jpeg 67279881-B4D0-40F4-94B3-54D30C7EDEEB.jpeg DD8355A6-A5E5-439E-ACCC-7EBE3752CD53.jpeg C709070F-774F-47EE-9948-64EFEADFDDFD.jpeg 4576CFA3-E906-4548-91C0-1C9C11227B25.jpeg EA2F4E0D-2EEF-4549-9430-96443442BEC6.jpeg DD8355A6-A5E5-439E-ACCC-7EBE3752CD53.jpeg 69E73783-D010-464A-8484-C05DA451793D.jpeg

    Hi @Aaron1980 You have a very nice, early (pre-1920) Travelling Optimus No.00 Patent stove.

    The main features which indicate the very early date are the bun feet, the collared legs and the external NRV.

    It has a nice patina and you should avoid polishing this desirable, Century-old stove...

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi thank you for the information! I did look through the post regarding the differences with these stoves but there is so much to take in that it’s great to get some information from someone who knows! I won’t be polishing it. Thanks again
    Aaron
