    I saw this stove recently on an auction site. It looks like a very early attempt at the then emerging kerosene technology. The burner even looks handmade. Any clues? I believe it is Russian.

    “... emerging kerosene technology” As in early Primus? Don’t think so. No pump, improbable tank form for a pressure vessel. Alcohol stove most probably. @gieorgijewski is ace at tracking down information on obscure stoves. Gieorgi?

    Sight of it made me shudder, reminding me of THIS dog of a stove!

    The burner design points toward wick fed and slightly self pressurizing spirit gas and the upward things could be suspenders for a purpose made tea pot.
