    Primus No.96 from 1919, the first year of reviving exports after the end of the First World War. Despite the revival of production and sales stoves from this date don't seem to come up that often, not in the UK at least. Probably a case of which markets picked up fastest. The stove is in decent order overall, barring the usual poorly executed old repair on this early type of pressure release (which is still on the to-do-list to rectify:oops:).

    100 years old and looking better than ever. Thanks for sharing your little treasure. The pocket outfit box is a real bonus. Have you fired it up?
