    As there are not too many of these in existence, especially with an original cast-iron top-plate, I offer here a portfolio of detail shots of the "Lilliput" Primus, from the first year these sported a date code (1911). This one has the old "cup" style silent burner, with no perforations in the burner cup and a fixed "screen", with brass inner cap and outer lid. Apart from a couple of flat spots on the underside this one is well preserved.

    Nice stove and great photos.

    You are lucky to have the cap for the burner: I've been searching for one for years.

    Cheers

    The stove is in excellent condition for its age.
    Although it does not have many examples in the gallery, the No.34 was manufactured for at least 30 years.

    abbahco,
    Thanks for posting an excellent example of a complete rare stove.
    1905 catalog shows it as "Nyet" N:o 34 tystbrinnande, N:o 30 icke tystbrinnande.("New" N:o 34 silent, N:o 30 not silent).

    Stating the obvious here, it is a 1 pinter, as much as the whole stove is rare I'd agree a surviving small Primus cast iron top-plate is indeed an esp. rare treat.

    The 'ol cup type burners are big, noticeably bigger than the successors. I'd guess your complete R132 silent is also esp. rare (large yes but smaller than old R133 used on 2 pinter No.5).
    really nice thanks again, omc

    Spirit cup is quite large (same burner - R132 - and cup that I also have on a No. 124 from sometime before 1911 - no date code). I posted as many detail shots as I could for archival purposes - to everyone can see original parts etc. best, Peter
