    Here is my last purchase, an old Victoria. Comparing to the others in this forum I believe this is one of the later models. It has a brass pump knob and the trivet don't have the countersunk part in the middle.
    I am very pleased with it as it has the unique burner intact. See earlier posts that shows the odd design with off center mounted rising tube.
    Another interesting thing is the design that holds the trivet to the stove. The legs are slipping over an edge of the trivet. A genius idea. Don't know why other manufacturers not copied this. A common thing is that the trivet gets lost from the stove.
    In this post you can see some instructions for the stove.

    Stunning @optipri - a wonderful stove:thumbup::mrgreen:

    Regarding the marvellous and clever method of securing the trivet, the only other one I can think of that is anything like it is this from Hasag.

    Quite something Bo, thanks for the insight. Yes, that trivet-locking arrangement is ingenious and could have been reproduced on a pressed steel example just as well as on a cast iron one.
