    This is an extremely rare stove from British maker Tilley.

    This is the first time I've seen this stove in such excellent condition. This version was made in the early 1920's

    Dane found this in a junk shop in Observatory , Cape Town and paid the equivalent of 50p! Even with it's missing parts this is a very nice find.
