    For some time I wanted to acquired a multiburner stove to fettle but price range we're out of budget until I spotted this one.

    I must confess that I bought without asking myself if it was original or some kind of hybrid stove. It look nice and complete.

    After going through the forum, I looked up @optipri post of a French Perfektus catalog. «Oh good it's a Perfektus Pluto 4 model» I told myself but why these ?:

    Can someone light my lantern ?

    Thank's !

    Heidersdorf is a modern incarnation of Hähnel, the originator of the Perfektus brand, which I first encountered when I featured the stove HERE. The 'Mewa' (Meva) label I don't get, although Heidersdorf stoves were produced in Czechoslovakia, Meva's country of origin.

    I see that a current ebay listing for your stove has a 'Heidersdorf' label and not one for Meva/Mewa.

    A Perfektus Pluto is most likely your stove's Great Grandad.

    Hello Steph
    Good buy!
    Have a look at this (and save the pictures for you):
    http://www.ebay.de/itm/like/2916833...91683341446&lgeo=1&vectorid=229487&rmvSB=true

    It shows your stove as a part of a military cooking set. VEB MEWA in Heidersdorf was the name of the company of Ernst Hähnel in the time of the German Democratic Republic (GRD), later in Lüdenscheid (Germany) with several brands. It has nothing to do with the Swiss MEWA, just the same name.

    Best Regards
    Radler
    PS presscall was quicker.
