A meths (alcohol) stove from the late 1800s or early 1900s
I had a little time today, and have been enjoying perusing goodies here in the Reference Gallery. I have NO idea how I missed your posting of this lovely little set, originally, but I'm very happy to have stumbled up on it today!! Excellent bit of kit, and in lovely condition, too!! I do recall that you and I both love the older Meths stoves, and so very much appreciate that you have shared this one here! Sorry to be so late to the party, and again, excellent little Meths stove and set!! Take care, and God Bless!
Every Good Wish,
That's true for me too. Lovely stove, beautifully presented.
Thanks to you both!

Kind words from you both.
I posted the photos in 2008 and I would have done much better if it was today.
The trend (thank goodness) is to post many detailed photos of a stove so that the reader can see and recognise all aspects of the stove.
This little stove (it is very small) is one of my favourites.
I love the way that the cast iron trivet has 'Houchin N.Y.' built into the trivet casting.
It is also a relief to know that this stove is 'Non-Explosive'!
Seems to me you did exactly that Trevor.
Yes indeed, that trivet casting is exceptionally fine.
For something essentially so simple and mundane, the whole package conveys a manufacturer's pride in their product and an exuberance and confidence in design and manufacture.

Hi, Trevor and John!
It's odd how this post slipped through our fingers, when you first made it Trevor. John, many thanks for owning up to also missing it, as it always feels better to have a good Mate admit that I was not the only one!
I love the way the entire kit fits together so perfectly! Stellar design, the integration of which is pure genius, me thinks!! Thank you, once again, for having posted this, and John and I will go sit quietly, faces in the corner, doing penance for having missed it back when you posted it!! Take care, Gentlemen, and as always, God Bless you and yours!
Every Good Wish,
Perfect trench stove for a WW1 officer!
