    and the smaller stove on the left for size comparison, is a Primus 10, dated AO ( 1950 )

    Both very lovely stoves. Ah, brass. It makes such lovely stoves (among other things). Aluminum, steel, etc just seem so pedestrian by comparison.

    Hi Ian, Nice stoves, and very well presnted, but what about the very superior storage/operating box?
    Please can we see some more photos, can you tell us something about its history? How is it constructed? Did you make it?

    Best Regards,
    George.

    Hi Kerophile,

    I will try and get as many pictures of the box when the light improves, and I will put it in the Parafinalia section.

    I came across it earlier in the year, from the car boot at the racecourse.
    It is heavy gauge steel, very robust construction, who ever made it, as it is hand made, did a darn good job of it.

    Kind regards
    Ian
