    Hi Vega, have you looked at the bottom? If there's only the maker's marks, it's pre-1911. From 1911 on there should be a letter, first in the maker's mark, later in a circle with a number.

    Best regards,

    Wim

    I dont think this one will be having any markings on the base. More than likely on the riser tube. If none at all, they it will definately be made after 1963. The giveaway is the curvature on the outer ring of the trivet. It is quite noticable on the underside, on the one on this link.

    Also it is the legs that suggest that it is a later model, as there isn't the nobbly bits on the bottom of the legs.
    Its a nice stove though.
    Cheers
    Ian

    You might be right Ian, but my pre-1911 N°5 also doesn't have the "nobbly bits" ;) on its feet! I assumed the cast iron trivet came with the stove as original which made me think it's an old stove. Ofcourse, being a non-fixed accessory it is not an ideal item to date stoves by :oops: .
    But all in all, it's a very nice stove! ;) Wouldn't mind to give it a place next to my N°6 O:)

    All the best,

    Wim

    PS., never realised they still made the cast trivets later than the 1930's

    It has to be later than 1963 because I can’t find markings anywhere
