    Seasons greetings to you,
    I am looking for help in identifying this simple cooker, it belonged to my grand parents who made their morning cups on. Must date back to the 1920s. The pump still works which preheats the head. The only signage being the letters FIX.
    Kind regards
    Tony

    Hi,
    Great to get a few replies to my query, first many years ago I did run the cooker and I think I ran it on meths,
    Thanks dusan for the printed info, the word FIX on the cooker and on your info says they must be the same, just a different model, I do not have the flame snuffed,
    Thanks again
    Tony

    Thank you Dusan, I think what you have added is amazing :thumbup:.

    Hello Tony and thanks for posting,
    Yours appears to be different model or vintage but "FIX" is extremely convincing. My impression is yours is a
    Eckel & Glinicke (E&G, German origin Julius Eckel, Albert Glinicke)
    "may" be Spirit "Boiler Fix" above (or not) or a different vintage "Fix" (yours absent handle, smaller burner).

    I noted GmbH (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung) on E&G's glühlicht - lampen katalog. My mistake, GmbH offers us very little (I confused it with German's DRGM / D.R.P.).
    That said having a "telegram adresse" is surely a hint re timeline.
    thx omc
    tag @dusan
    PS I am doubling-down how impressed I am with Dusan's post :thumbup::thumbup:. Yes "FIX" helped nail it but absent that there are many very similar burners. I did not expect an ID was forthcoming.
