    Hello everyone,

    Apparently I’ve bungled the title.

    I hope this is where this goes.

    I have loved the domed look of these for years and I have finally had the opportunity to purchase the Sievert 25; it’s still has to be shipped so I’ll have to be patient a little while longer.

    Can someone please tell me what the purpose of the cross is above the burner dome?

    I’m assuming that these either didn’t come with a guard or that they are often lost and never found again.

    Thank you,
    John

    Hi hiddenhider/John.

    Locally to me the heaters found are derived from mostly different stock

    Kayen HR 11

    There were Companion brand ones made here to a similar style to the Svea 25 though I can't dig up a photo at present.

    I suspect it's a stand for a pot or kettle to prevent the room drying out with heat but no humidity. Or to make tea. But it isn't a common fitting on other photos of similar heaters so may be aftermarket.

    I though maybe it was for a small pot but the pictures I have only show the front support leg; I guess I’ll have to wait to see it to get a better idea.

    Hello hiddenhider,
    Congrats on the score! Thanks for sharing it here.
    re " Can someone please tell me what the purpose of the cross is above the burner dome?"

    Good question, I look forward to you having it in hand and taking a closer look.

    A look around the site ie gallery >sweden >sievert >other models
    finds

    and
    this 25 credit Matthew,
    both as heaters.
    I did not see answer to your question yet however.

    If for a pot, like lanterns, not a good source for cooking, but a teapot for humidity might be a good reason. Wonder about the holes in those arms.

    I’m dubious the single support arm is strong enough for a pot. My ‘guess’, repeat guess is some sort of light guard.

    It's a typical collapsible stove heater - in this case a heater, they were sold as stoves, heaters or combined - and there were sets to convert the single versins to combinations.
    The combination has one set of stove supports and one set of heater supports.
    They usually had some sort of protecting wire cage in front of the dome.
