    I know this will not by any means win any beauty competitions, but for me it is a winner !!

    I have only caried out a service fettle, washers seals and burner clean out (re built the fixed preheat torch). I didnt want to rub the nickel plating off, so it will be left as is.

    Hi, Andrew,

    WOW! Very nice old SVEA, Sir, and running like a top, too!! I think you have scored a nice stove, and also that you made a wise decision not to take away it's patina. Looks lovely, just as it is, Mate!! Well done, and thanks for sharing it with us. Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi Andrew, What a handsome Svea stove!
    It looks like a well-used stove from the amount of wear on the pump-cap.
    Thanks for posting the photos.
    Best Regards
    Kerophile.

    Nice work and stove Andrew :) . I love that pot support and all the details that Sievert had with the older stoves. Thanks for sharing,
    Dan

    Hi Andrew, I was just comparing the photos of your Svea No.15, with those of a similar stove I have.
    I reckon yours might be slightly earlier than my one, which I beleve might date from the 1930s. Both have the same external NRV, but your filler cap (with what I call "mickey-mouse" ears), is I think earlier.

    I wonder what the F&M on one side of the filler cap refers to? Perhaps a local agent or supplier?

    Lovely stove anyway.
    Best Regards,
    George.

    Instead of a tea test, now having full control of the kitchen i have a feature stove or stove of the week !! It then has a "series of challenges"
    My tea, coffee, main meals and bacon sarnies :lol: I have to say this stove passed all tests and challenges it came up against :content:
