    @DonBW Need a photo with the cap off to confirm. Could be a ‘tubular’ wick or a round (section) one. Base Camp will stock something suitable on giving them the internal diameter of the brass riser the wick fits into.

    Center pipe use to be filled with cotton - types with significant open space around center pipe should have a tubular wick as a sleeve on center pipe.
    It burns alcohol.

    Here is a circa 1900-1910 german WMF.
