    Hy, my name is Andrea from florence, Italy; i read a lot in this forum for 2 days :-k and a new world is open to me :idea:. I am really impressed by your passion and competence.
    I bought this old camp stove a few days ago for only € 10 and I would like it to work again.
    It's very dirty but i can read "SVEA" "Svierteg" "n.16" "PETROLIO SPLENDOR"

    Before doing anything I still have to read a lot and learn from you.

    :clap::clap:Thank you for all this interesting material

    Welcome @Andrea Assenti!
    I’ve enjoyed my visits to Florence very much. Beautiful city.

    Your Svea’s an excellent stove. It looks like it needs an outer burner cap. More on the Svea No.16 HERE.

    Regards,

    John

    In several countries Oil Companies had agreements with stove manufacturers and had their names included on the stove.
    Svea stoves, made in Sweden had such an agreement with Splendor.

    thanks to both of you, i had already see the links but , because of my poor english I have some problems understanding, especially the technical terms; I will wait to reopen the fettlebox store for the "outern burner cap";
    I have yet to figure out how to clean it without ruining the beautiful antique patina;
    if it can be useful at the forum I will send some more photos

    Best Regards,
    Andrea.

    Welcome. I'm fairly new myself to the forum, although certainly not stoves. Florence is possibly the most beautiful city I've visited to date.

    Welcome @Andrea Assenti to CCS.
    That is a good first stove and should clean up nicely. :thumbup:

    Thanks again to everyone for the warm welcome.
    I can't start to replace parts yet and make the stove fully operational so I just upload some more photos if it is useful as reference.
    photo:
    1) English; French; Italian; Greek; Arabic;
    2) burner
    3) bottom
    4) No. 16 Sievert
    5) Refill cap

    I also think, as already mentioned by others, that the kerosene company "Splendor" produced these stoves in Italy in collaboration with the Swedish SVEA Sievert.

    As for Florence I have to admit that yes, it's beautiful for tourists but that living in it can be complicated, a lot. ;)
