    Svecia No.5 with an original box and instructional paperwork dating it to no earlier than 1934. In addition to what can be seen in the photos 'PATENT MADE IN SWEDEN' appears in exceptionally feint plain capital letters on the tank top just above the NRV dome position. Beyond that there are no other markings on the stove itself other than what is shown. There is nothing written on the tank bottom, tank sides, filler cap or pressure screw.

    Hi Ian @igh371 , What a find! I rate Eriksson stoves very highly and this one has been very well looked after, presumably in dry storage.
    From its date I wonder if it was bought as a stand-by stove by some family, before the outbreak of hostilities in WW2?
    The "blobby" lettering of the stove name is very much of its time and is also seen on Sievert stoves of the same period.
    Thanks for posting.
    Best Regards,
    George.
