    Hello
    Have been looking for this predecessor of the 111 for awhile and here it is. There is no patent number on the case so this must be a later version I suppose.I do not think this stove has seen much use. brgds Bjørn

    It was certainly worth the wait.

    Beautiful stove bok - she doesn't appear to have ever been fired (no heat marks on pot support, no scratches, paint loss, etc). Now you'll have to get a user version.

    Beautiful! Very much worth the wait. I've been waiting quite a long time for one those to pop up!

    The paint on the outside of the case is such an unusual color - a glossy, charcoal, is it? Hard to tell with the slide glare, but nice.

    Thanks,
    sam

    Thank you for the kind words gentlemen.
    Yes it is a beauty. Have not decided if I shall fire it.
    The stove is unused and painted in a dark green glossy colour. brgds Bjørn

    Very nice. About when I think I have all the stoves I desire, someone posts another.

    I agree, that is a nice stove.
    On my list now.

    The N°11 is one of my favorites! Maybe it is just me, but it looks to have a stronger flame than my N°111 roarers. Yours looks beautiful!

    Best regards,
