Went to a local flea market and came across these little jems.  First one is a "Whitall Tatum Co." Pocket Stove, comes with a burner, pot and stove stand, which has steps for adjusting the height of the burner and the pot.

Second is a Svea No. 105.  This is by no means a pocket stove, the whole thing stood about 10" tall and weighed about 3 lbs and seemed to have a fix or two applied.

This is the top of the Svea 105 stove,

I'll be contacting the seller to get more info on these, but in the meantime, anyone know anything about them?

I love the etching done on the brass, I've always liked that look.

One last look at the Whitall, showing it nested inside the pot.

Oh yeah, the box indicates it's dated circa 1887.

Pretty neat stoves. That was probably cutting edge stuff for back in their day. They would be great conversation pieces to have on display. I imagine they would clean up pretty nice and shine up real pretty.

Hey, I represent that remark.  Careful who you are calling old. :)  Not so many years ago I was still using an old Optimus stove.
Nice find.

I just came across one of these Whitall Tatum pocket stoves at a garage sale and want to try it out, but am not sure what type of fuel it burns. Also, do you remove the small cap only or the large cap? Anyone know? Your help/knowledge will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Reggie6650

the whitall tatum stove is an alcohol burning stove, the svea 105 is a kerosene burning stove. the svea requires priming with alcohol in the cup below the burner before it can be pumped up to pressure using the hand pump. the flame is controlled by a combination of pumping and releasing tank pressure by the small knob on top of the filler cap. only burn kerosene or diesel in this type of stove, never gasoline or coleman fuel! it can and probably will explode if you are dumb enough to try it.........

I love antique camp stoves. My mom was a girl scout leader and I remember her making me what was called a buddy stove and I loved using it until we went to a camp out and I saw the nice stoves the people with money were using.
