    That's a very nice alcohol burner you have there. I really like the quietness and simplicity of these stoves. At first I couldn't figure out what the Electrosvit lighting company video had to do with your stove. Then after re-playing it a couple of times I noticed the Wikthorn alcohol stove shown at the beginning of the video. Apparently they made stoves before merging into a lighting company. Thanks for taking the time to post such great pictures and the video showing the company's roots.

    Dusan,

    Wow, you've really done some research on the history of this stove. Very well done and very interesting. A quick Google search told me that Wienna is the same as Vienna the capital of Austria. It's so rare that you can track down the history of a stove company like that. Nicely done!
