    It's the green little brother from Gary's green enamel doubleburner with a nr 51 burner from the year 1926 (P1).
    Also the green brother from John's blue enamel burner.

    The burnerplate has a little chip, but not unusual for a 1926 stove.

    Tracer may I ask how you painted the green paint on the potstand? as its the most beautiful color and type of paint job I have seen on just about anything. I really really like this one as well as the other that was posted some months back. What was the the paint process? type of paint? or Enamel? Powder paint?

    Like David said, they come like this out the factory.
    As you can see in the catalog, you had the choice between a non enamelled, a blue or green enamelled potstand.
