    Found this at a flea market ( barn sale ).

    i think i paid £ 7.00 for it. I gave it a clean and a bit of paint. There are not many on the CCS, so i thought i would add mine :D

    Nice stove! Wish I am that lucky when I go to flea markets. Then again people do tend to keep such items as long as it works and useful to them.

    Hi lanevitt, Beautiful stove and well-presented. How about some more photos? We love photos on CCS and it would be interesting to see any lettering on the stove and the detail of the filler cap and pump knob etc.
    I love Max Sievert products but I have never seen this model before.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi
    I am glad you like the stove. I will add more photo's if you wish, and include more of my other finds, Here in Denmark most of the stoves i find are from Max sievert.
    Thankyou also for your kind words on my Dishwasher oven.

    Hi Lanevitt

    This stove was popular in Denmark in the 1950s along with the similar Ginge stove.

    The version with four legs was more common, but this three-legged version stood firmly on an uneven surface and took up less space. The low center of gravity and the broad base prevents the stove from tipping over when you place a heavy pot on it.

    Here is a picture of your stove from Dansk Husmoderleksikon 1954 (The Danish Housewife's Encyclopedia). The encyclopedia has a long article on how to use and maintain kerosene stoves. The text says "Three types of kerosene devices".

    I am the lucky owner of a Svea Komfur 60. Does anybody know how to use it. Do I only have to use petroleum?

    @Frank Petersen

    That stove is designed to run on (in English) kerosene (= paraffin).

    Cheers

    = Petroleum in danish.
    Instructions that describe the process to use the stove can be found here. I chose a Norwegian one since the terms are the same and you should read it just fine.

    The operating parts and functionality is the same, although the stove looks different.

    It is a great stove you got there!!!!
