    A second example of a Svea 14 from the period immediately around WW1. The '14' was that bizarre 'cheaper' version of a No.4 which featured the No.4 size variant of the tubular silent burner that one would expect, but then had to make do with the 'thinner brass' specification 1.2 litre tank that was also used for the No.s 12, 15 and 16 rather than a correct 0.7 litre No.4 size tank!

    This example, however, although in other respects more 'well used' than my previous No.14 posting, does justify a place in the gallery since it has the benefit of retaining its original inner and outer cap burner fittings:

    The remaining features are all those that, in combination, make up the post-1908 - c.1920 period identity: Cyrillic tank panel, 'bubble' font, standard pump rod form, 'Svea Made in Sweden' pump tube cap, 'Mickey Mouse ears' filler cap, 'Aktiebol. Max Sievert Stockholm. Made in Sweden' base stamp etc. Tank base in this case shows off particularly well the tell-tale marks from the metal spinning process used in shaping the piece:

    I've never seen one like that before. Must be rare as hen's teeth. Thanks for sharing.

    Another wonderful old Svea. I love that 'snake' burner.
    Everything about the stove smacks of quality and innovation.
    I think I spot a quality brass pricker holder. :D
