    Hello,
    Manufacturer in the photograph, but since it is a company which does not already exist, I do not know in detail.
    Probably a model of 50s to 60s.
    I am a beginner to the stove. It was the first fuel stove. Restored the old ones in the photo.
    I got information on this site and was able to restore.
    I appreciate the activity here.
    This stove is easy for beginners to handle and fire power is great.

    I do not know whether it is for the Japanese market.
    This stove came out from the warehouse of an old shop where Nagoya was out of business. Probably it was an exhibit.
    Tony Press seems to have found a SNAIL stove in Australia, so it may have been exported.

    I am extremely grateful to learn how to extinguish the Colman kerosene stove nonflammable extinguishing method on this WEB site.
    This stove gets ignited very quickly and easily and instantly as a blue flame, but the smell after extinguishing was the worst until I knew this method.

    Terrific!-) The work of art!
    Fascinating flame, it make whole stove looks like some hi-tec device, or part of UFO in action :)
    Especially on this view angle :)
    Unusal por support - it more difficult in production than with even numbers of stands.
    Digit 7 is sagnificant in Japanise traditions, probably?

    It may have caused me to misunderstand.
    Seven star cigarettes were taken for size comparison.
    I took this picture to inquire a friend,
    Older Japanese have a tradition to judge size by shooting cigarettes together.

    I do not know that Google translation can not be converted because I do not understand English.

    I meant - 7 beams on the pot support. There was my mistake in previous message ("por support")

    @Rai,

    Can you please provide the original Japanese? I will attempt to work out a translation.

    Romanji is fine. Kanji is better.

    @Aleks-S ,

    Seven is a special number in Japanese culture (as it is in many cultures). It is both significant and lucky.

    日本語で書き込めるのかな?
    日本でのラッキーナンバーはどちらかというと8です。 昔使っていた漢数字で見ると広がっていくため縁起が良いとされます。そして4と9は避けられています。
    Tripodは日本語では五徳と言われていますが、歴史的に3本か4本のようです。
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/五徳
    このタイプの五徳は中華料理に便利な物ですね、火力が強いので中華料理を想定したものかもしれません。

    うまく翻訳できると良いのですが(^^

    OK, what I get out of that, roughly, is that 8 is really the best lucky number. The way 8 is written (sorta like this: / \) is welcoming and beneficent, like open arms. (Um, I added a lot there...). 4 and 9 are very bad numbers.

    This stove is powerful and would be good for cooking Chinese food. Perhaps in a wok or somesuch, I guess.

    He is more familiar (I think) with stoves that have three or four pot supports. Or, perhaps, stoves are usually made with three or four, or they have often been made with three or four in the past.

    I don't think old Japanese stove fettlers shooting cigarettes together has much to do with anything.
