    One to be identified sometime.

    The tank, legs and spirit cup are steel, interesting little spirit cup, the pot stands are made of brass.
    There is a hexagon nut non return valve, in the bottom of the pump tube,working ok, so not touching - no tool to get it out !

    As in the opening description, it is a regulated burner, very controllable three tube burner, its just a simple screw in/screw out spindle - much the same as on some early meths stoves, no rack/cleaning needle.

    No heat seals required, the spriggett compresses between the riser tube and the inside of the burner nut.

    The tank capacity is about 1 3/4 pints.

    A very well made stove, by whoever.

    The bird's stove Hi The Bird posted a similar stove purchased here in NZ

    At the time I had no clue what it was however I have seen a few Aladdin stoves with the same reg handle since then.

    Did you buy this from Aussie? Could it be Aladdin?

    Cast the net wide for this one Ian. Ebay Oz I think?

    I'm guessing it's of Australian manufacture.

    Having read The Bird's thoughts about the stove, I can't see this being austerity. Brass legs, regulated burner, it is a stove with total quality - not what I would expect during an austerity period.

    Not even the early steel Primus stoves come close to the quality of this one.

    The tank and legs bear a resemblance to an early Primus 216. The spindle and the control knob, again bear a resemblance to the Campingo Nos 1 & 2. The 3 tube burner is very similar to the German Kunze Karat 90 and others.

    Just a thought on timeline - 1930s ?

    Hello Iani,

    Yup, she's a sister to my Ol' Girl, but with her clothes on. I'm glad you appreciate yours as much as I appreciate mine. Enjoy using her, she'll deliver every time. I never fail to smile when I light my Ol' Girl up. Good luck finding out her name and her pedigree, I'll be watching with interest.

    Best regards,

    Mike.

    Hi Mike

    When I first saw her on Ebay NZ, I thought, umm, this looks nice. I am not sure whether it is a passion I feel, or a lust for the stove. Whatever the feeling is, this stove has got a lot of class.

    Hi iani, Do you think this burners thread will fit a 1 pint stove. The thread on mine is clearly smaller than a 2 pint burner. I have one of these burners and am not sure what to do with it?

    Hi theyellowdog

    Found the stove today. No, the burner thread won't fit a 1 pint stove, or any other European stove, come to that. If I find out any info I will PT you. Keep the burner, it is rare.
