    This is a stove I found a few weeks ago. I have not polished the stove or anything. This is realy a nice stove. I think it is from about 1912,
    There is some facts about it here on CCS.
    Cheers!

    Hi Johan - great to see an example with the pan-ring. A real rarity. Many thanks for sharing this with us.

    Hi Johan that's a very rare stove i would think it is from around 1912 if not earlier i cant remember seeing a pressure release screw placed just under the burner before very unusual. It would be nice to see it up and running and see how it performs

    Hello and welcome, Johan.

    That is one very lovely stove.
    When you get it lit, post some photos.

    Curious about the priming dish.

    Is the passage from the dish connected to the "air valve" and is it possible to use this system to flood the dish with kero for priming?

    AR, you can't get the paraffin up via the bleedervalve (unless you have the tank filled completely and up to a level above the outlet for the bleeder hole.
    The only idea with letting the pressure out at that odd place is because of Pyros gimmick that it would prevent odours when extinguishing the stove. (The fumes is supposed to be incinerated in the last remains of the flame).

    Check the discussion further down at this topic.

    Or some additional information from the reference section here.
