    I recently acquired this stove from India.

    Beautiful.

    My FIL gave me a 210. Always a treat to fire it up.

    That is a fine 210 stove.
    The 210 is one of my most favourite stoves.

    Yours has the small cast iron trivet which is very rare.

    I thought that the trivet was an aftermarket item since I didn't see many 210's with them. She has a beauty mark (dent) that wasn't apparent when I ordered the stove but I can live with it. I intend to take this stove hiking with me on some occasions. Thanks

    Hi @Cookie the pan-rest was an optional extra. The box of the Primus 210 outfit is not big enough to accept the pan-rest, it has to be carried separately.
    If you look closely you will see that the top of the legs are serrated to grip the bottom of any pan or kettle to reduce any slippage.

    Great to see an interesting stove, particularly with the optional pan-rest.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @kerophile Thanks for the link. I knew they carried this style of stove but did not know what it all looked like. I had an epiphany looking at the pictures. I passed up a 210 with the threaded mounts recently not knowing what they were for. The hunt is on :D/

    @SveaSizzler That's actually why I bought it. Although I dream of climbing mountains the reality is that my health prevents it. I hope to use it on my hiking trips during the winter at 6500' elevations in the future and wanted the reliability, compactness, etc of this stove.
