A 1 pint Optimus 200 stove. These ran from 1910> to approx. mid 1930's (it disappeared from the catalogues in 1933). Interestingly none were pictured with their tin. This was the forerunner of the 00, but has the 100 series vaporizer and burner basket. She was found almost complete (only missing her draughtshield) and included a large spirit can. The hinges are soldered and are solid. The tin has a looped handle on the front panel as well as the clasp that folds neatly over the tin. Inside, the box has a bracket to store the burner and missing windscreen and there is another bracket to retain the spirit can. There is also an internal bracket that contains the pot supports. It has a steel pump rod, hexagon faced nut and a spanner stamped Optimus, making me believe this is a 1920's model. The tinned surface tins disappeared around 1925 (the Primus tins did).
