    Hi, I am very fond of Max Sievert's products. His company made excellent quality blowlamps and stoves. The tank markings (engravings) are first class.

    Here are some photos of a Svea 106 stove. This is a 1.75 pint classic brass stove. It is collapsible and is fitted with a roarer burner:

    The Svea 106 is a lovely stove isn't it?

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, this stove is likely pre-1964/5 as the crest on the packaging is marked:


    "AB Max Sievert Establ 1882 Stockholm Sweden".


    "In 1964 Svenska Esso acquired AB Max Sievert, who by now were also making LP gas cylinders & merged them with an earlier acquisition, Svenska Skiffoljibolaget, a LPG producer. The new Esso company was called AB Sievert Apparater. In 1966 AB Sievert Apparater took over the Primus part of the Bahco group & the new amalgamated company was called Primus-Sievert AB.
    The Sundyberg factory was closed in 1969/70 & the Svea brand was acquired by Optimus as they had done with the Primus brand nearly a decade earlier.

    the above extract is from:
