    I took these photos quite a while ago, don't know why I did not post them earlier[-X:roll:. Let's just blame this All Zheimer guy for it...:whistle:

    In fact, this story begins with me finding a nice "Trois Etoilles" silent (N° 105), without pot holders and burner cap but otherwise in fair condition for....€1 at a local flea market. One year later at another local flea market €3 was spend on an empty box..... for a Svea N°106. Now, let's combine the two! Sadly, the Trois Etoilles was not as good as it looked at first sight, the burner being soldered in situ. It does work, but I won't take any risks damaging the whole stove. So, another year (or two) passed before I found a rather nice, complete Svea 106 sans box. Huray!:D/

    That box was a great find. I've never seen one before. Finding the correct stove to go in it makes it even better. Congratulations.

    Morning, Wim,

    WOW!! That was a great buy on your SVEA 106!!! Those are wonderful stoves, and to get the box along with it, is quite a deal!! Thanks for posting your photos, too, and for sharing your excellent find with us all!!

    I once found a nice 106, like yours, up in Alaska. Some previous owner had made a wooden box for it, in which it fits very nicely. I'm embarrassed to report that I have not made the time to fettle, or use it! :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: Seems I have too many stoves, and not enough time to get to each one! Oh, well...... not a bad "problem", eh?!?!! ;) :lol: Thanks, again, Wim, and hearty congrats on scoring that wonderful SVEA setup!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Wim, the Svea 106 is one of my favourite stoves.
    The fact that your stove is in its original 'suitcase' makes it very special.

    These cases were basically thick cardboard with a leather-looking finish on them.
    When I was young my family had some of these 'poor man' suitcases.
    They were surprisingly strong and long lasting.

    Hi Wim,

    Great find thanks for sharing.

    If anyone is in need of a new tin for their camping stove here in the US we have Lunchbox.com.

    I'm sure there is something similar across the pond.

    Cheers,
    Norman
