Exhibit description

We can easily imagine using this small stove at a campsite. However, its ornamental elements indicate that this device was used in family kitchens rather than outdoors. This is because gas appliances sometimes had to be bought in stores which were located far from one’s place of residence. Therefore, these single burner stoves had one big advantage – for example, once purchased in a remote town, it was easy to transport them by train or horse-drawn carriage.
