    This Svecia came to me in the condition as shown. I gave it a gentle clean and replaced the seals.

    The stove features include

    The early silent burner as shown in the 1911 catalogue https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/1911-k-f-erikssons-svecia-catalogue.24809/
    The burner has no manufacturer markings except a K stamped as shown in the photo

    Early pump rod design featuring fixed backstop with leather sealing washer behind the pump cup.

    The external NRV

    Wide feet pads

    Cast iron trivet (Does not match the 1911 catalogue)

    There are no marks or inscriptions on either the filler cap or pressure release key.

    There are no other markings on the stove itself other than what is shown in the pictures. There is no manufacturer mark on the tank bottom nor are there inscriptions on the tank sides.

    @ROBBO55 , excellent example, you are especially lucky to have the original correct top caps for that burner. I think the cast trivet could well be original too. It is (was) a proprietary design which is often found on Eriksson stoves of that era. Eriksson didn't seem to put their name on many of the components that they used. A great find.

    Excellent!

    Where did you pick that up from?

    Thanks Ian for your assessment of the stove.
    I wasn't sure of the trivet. When you look at the catalogue the design in the casting are more curved intersecting lines than the cross hatch pattern on this one.

    @Tony Press
    Thanks Tony, I found the stove a couple of years ago at a weekend market in Port Stephens near Newcastle (Australia). It's been quietly sitting in a box in the shed awaiting it's turn.

    Thanks John, I love the old brassies and as I learn't more about what I had found my appreciation for it grew.

    @The Warrior
    Thanks
