    Here we have a 1915 Condrup No.1 Compact Outfit. Basically just the next year on from @Lighthouse's 1914 Outfit, and the successor to the earlier Swedish-boxed 230 (e.g.) The only two notable points I can see are firstly the extraordinary contrast between the very poor state of the outside fabric of the tin and the wonderful condition of the interior and contents!

    And secondly there is the interesting happenstance of the 'E' date letter having been partly over-stamped by an entangled factory construction mark 'P', there is also a triangular factory mark not far off too.

    The peculiar positioning of the production stamp 'P' over the date letter (E) reminds me of the 'C' on this stove - an genuine add-on date letter? or a random placement of a production mark?
