    Primus No.21, pre-1911, and still being with the F.W.Lindqvists pump tube cap, unlikely to be later than 1908. Quite decent shape despite having had a couple of dubious leg fixing repairs and a probably linked bit of work to part of the tank bottom edge seal, and a trivet that could do with some TLC. The only non-original part appears to be the pump rod.

    All well and good, but there is one puzzling feature. The 1905 catalogue, which first introduced this model, shows a combined filler/pressure release cap similar to that used on the 230 model. This is what we also find on @optipri's 1912 example. But, sandwiched between those 2 dates, this example has been furnished with the type of pressure release normally found on early No.100s:? I don't have a catalogue reference or an explanation for that:-k
