    late 30's.Considering the age,maybe this model inspired Max Sievert produce thier 123 to the same dimentions rather than evolve their Campus3 ?

    Absolute beauty! And a good performer too by the looks of the flames! So if I am right, the Optimus N°6 is the daddy of the Svea 123? And where does one situate the Barthel-Juwel N°33/34? Are these older or younger? :-k

    Regards,

    Wim

    One of only 2 I know about. Many thanks for posting Takeshi - a rare treat for us to see!

    Notice the pin on the heat deflecter shield like the early 123? For holding the key?


    It's a stretch, but something I've suggested before; Svea 123 - add the numbers together & what do you get? Barthel 33 - add the numbers together & what do you get?

    6!!

    As some of you have spotted this stove features in the 1939 catalogue. It doesn't in the 1935 edition so there's a clue to when it was around.

    anyone have any idea why these went out of production?..unless the 123 was way under the price of this i can see the #6 as being a better stove..and more great photos once again :D

    It was gone before the 123 came out. Price wise it was on par with the Optimus 8, 80, 96 & Svea Campus 3 - give or take a shilling.

    Like the 9 it just seemed to come & go & a short period of time.

    Hi Gents,

    Thanks many respond.
    I think this can be thought older than Jwell 34,but 33 I don't have clue..am agree about thinking this No:6 as Daddy,maybe Campus1 is a granpa?(but very fatty I guess :-k

    Yes,This def shield has a PIN for keep the valve key like a early Svea123,well spotted 8)

    regards TS
