    Here is a rare one, the silent-burning range, No. 124 which seems to have appeared as early as 1914, and remained in the catalogue until about 1920-22

    Superb range stove with a great cast top plate.
    Definitely still in the Primus catalogue in 1922.

    Very nice example of a range, i all ways admire the beautiful detail in these older stoves.
    The detailed lettering on both the brass ware and cast iron is superb, well done.

    Excellent!

    You are very lucky to have the original cap for the burner. I'm still on the hunt for one.

    Cheers

    Now That's a magnificent stove! I really like the base. I would say in some way the whole state of mind has been lost in the past, that was involved in designing and crafting such a beauties out of cast iron.

    I have now fettled the No. 124: this one is not date-coded, so I guess it must be just pre-1911: it has the same pump cap and knob as a No. 34 ("Lilliput") from 1911 that I also have. Here are some supplementary photos of various details, as this one is in entirely original condition (even down to the burner no. R 132, with fixed perforated shield and lid) and gives a good idea of what these exquisite little ranges were like when new. I have also included a photo of No. 124 next to a much later (1953) No. 510, also a wonderful single-burner range, but more sleekly utilitarian than the Edwardian splendour of the No. 124, with its filigree cast-iron frame.
