    Appeared in 1958, the Super Bleuet was the successor of the Bleuet Butane canister stove. It used bigger gas canisters, was of a different design, and came with three interesting options:

    - the first one was the cap. In french, it's called unofficially "bleuet obus" which means "bleuet shell", because of its particular shape, reminding war ammunitions. The original cap came in a nice two-color livery, blue and white. On newer models, this cap was grey and from a different plastic: softer, which was probably supposed to make it more resistant

    - the second one was a plastic base. It has 4 "feet" around a circular part, where you can place the stove and make it more stable. The funny fact about it is that, on an original advertising from Camping Gaz, it's presented as something to prevent damage to furniture, and not a stable base...

    - the third one is a windscreen, which my stove doesn't have.

    Pictures of the stove and its two accessories:

    Some advertising from Camping Gaz, not dated but considered as very late 1950's / very early 1960's.

    Thanks, Twoberth and Martin. AND, it came with gas left in the canister. I bet that it could be an original design as the one on the picture, as this stove didn't seem to be much used... To be continued!
