    I have this gasoline stove Venus No.1, Made in Japan.
    Nothing I could find, at least as information could be old.
    Excuse my English, I use translator

    hi there That looks like a kerosene or "petrolej" stove, please do not use gasoline or "benzin". The burner seems to be a silent type but the burner cap is missing based on the pictures. As for the brand it's my first time to encounter one.

    Greetings, Martin68,

    You have a very lovely brass stove there, and it seems in fairly good condition, other than missing it's inner and outer burner caps. I would guess that most Optimus, Primus, or Radius silent caps would fit your stove, and that you may be able to find the parts you need at Basecamp, a CCS sponsor.

    Could you take an up-close photo of what is engraved on the pump cap? It looks like "Primus Made in Sweden", but I can't quite make it out. That might help us learn more about your stove.

    Where do you live? Not to worry about having to use a translator, as I'm sure I would have to do the same if I wrote in your language. Welcome to CCS, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi Doc, I send photo with a description, maybe this will help.
    I collect old stoves and some I can not identify.
    I'm interested mainly years of production.
    Yes, I am from Czech Republic .... :-)
