    I only have two house hold stoves. My great grandfathers old Høvik Verk, and this Radius No:1. I bought this one because of the special silent burner, I just love the flame pattern. :D/

    Hi Vidar, what a beautiful, and early, Radius stove.
    You have provided some great photos of the stove and the lovely lettering on the tank.
    These special silent burners are rather special and I look forward to seeing the night-time shots.
    Best Regards,
    George.

    The special silent burner is a bonus to your beautiful 1C. Outstanding silent burner flames.

    The cap is so red, could it be underburning? I do like the red, just wondering.

    Hi Vidar @logen . the tank and fittings of your stove are marked AB RADIUS. This mark was used up to around 1938/1940. Later stoves were marked "Radius Ltd". Your stove is likely pre-1938.

    Congratulations on a very nice Radius 1C.

    Your stove is an early example. It is manufactured before 1925.

    @Northern Light

    I'm interested in understanding which features of the stove make it "pre-1925".

    Cheers

    Tony

    Hi, the fabricated Radius pan-holder certainly dates from the early 1920s.

    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/radius-5s-or-pre-1930s.11654/

    In the 1920 Radius catalogue the pan-holders offered are the earliest form of Radius pan holder fabricated from steel sheet.
    This is the type shown on Vidar's stove.

    By the 1925 catalogue the cast-iron and the second Radius fabricated form of pan-ring are offered side-by-side:

    Unfortunately we do not have many Radius catalogues in the Stove Reference Library.
    However, the 1920 catalogue shows the filler cap to be the same as the one on this stove.

    By 1925 the filler cap had changed to this . . .

    @Tony Press

    The features are already pointed out by @kerophile and @shagratork. The filler cap and pan-holder are good indicators. The pump varies over time as well. There are other variations e.g. the tank.
