    Mostly these early 1900 stoves has been used a lot and burner has been replaced. A bit sad because the burner itself is the hart of the stove and shows the original design. This one has the rare burner R137.
    The summer period is normally not the most common to fettle stoves buth with a week with over 30 degrees, I am pleased to sit in my shred with the air condition on and try to tidy up some items from the to-do shelf.
    So this is the latest one, a 107 year old beauty with all parts intact.

    Hi Bo, here is your stove and that very special burner from a folded 4-side Primus broadsheet dated 1908.
