    This No.126 stove with 2¼ pts or 1.3 litre content is the biggest collapsible stove of the Svea range.

    The colourful tin indicates a pre-war vintage; the meth's tin should be a taller model but I am not complaining.

    Pricker No.970 and Jet wrench No.980. Spirit can No.869 which should be the taller No.866. Split windshield No.744

    Nice! I got one of these recently after waiting patiently for years.

    I think this is the first generation of grapical tins from Svea after the plain tinned ones.

    Well then, Ross, they sure stepped in with an abundance of colours! The picnic scene shows bicycles with a 20's style of handlebars - putting those at ease who did not have a camel.
    The tin is identical to that of the Optimus 1-S, another pointer to the late 20's and 30's methinks.
    Regards, Mike

    In the metal way: size, shape and fittings. Check yours! Regards, Mike

    I see!

    Toshiaki's 126 http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~opt00l/gsvea126.htm]here[/url] shows the correct vintage spirit-can. (scroll down to second 126)

    My version has the same windshield as his but a different spirit-can. Possibly mine is wrong but it's what came with it when I bought it. The wrench is no:989

    Could it be that Toshiaki has an earlier, and you the earliest version? After all, the technology of stove-making was already established, but the making of accesories did show progress and change.
    The non-painted tins, were they outfitted with soldered cans or containers?
    By the way, what a nice collection there in Japan!
    Cheers, Mike

    I'll have to check the catalogues re the spirit-cans. My early ones have bottles including a nice one with SVEA moulded into the glass.

    Did these stoves not a have a Stove Grate, or are they just missing from the Stoves pictured?
