    A very original Edwardian period Primus model '0'. Early type pump assembly with worn 'Lindqvists patent' end cap, no markings on either side of the pressure release screw, and a Primus branded cast top plate. The burner, however, although a genuine old Primus unit, has markings which indicate that it must have been a replacement acquired at some later date.

    Lovely patina on that 100+ year old stove.

    Wow!

    What a treasure
    The emphasis on patent size on the fount makes me think it's a early first
    Thanks for the share
