    A remarkably little used Svea No.11, seemingly from just prior to WW1, which had sat untouched for many years. It is complete with what would appear to be the original burner and trivet, and original lustre on much of the tank. The cork filler cap seal is still clean and the legs too still have most of their original protective coating. Crucial to the attempt at dating is the fact that the pump rod cap has the earlier 'Nybergs Patent Sundbyberg' inscription, but in combination with the first version of the newer design of pump rod and carrier (compare with the only very slightly earlier combination on this example). Note how the cup carrier does not have a slot in the top to assist assembly and disassembly. The one dilemma was whether to attempt anything more than the most minimal clean, which, in the end, is all that has been done, rather than risk striping what was left of the original lustre. Exceptionally little else needed to be done to have it fired up and brought back to life.

    Thank you for the great photos of this old stove. The Sievert markings are excellent.


    Cheers

    @Tony Press - thanks Tony, and I'm well impressed at the quality of that flame from a c.110 year old original burner with an unchanged jet!
