Antique Civil War Era Tin Camp Stove Kerosene Oil Folding Handle Rare Cooking:
Here we have a RARE find and that would be an Antique 1800s Tin Camp stove that has an unusual folding handle that allows for it to be stored in a small space more easly.Stoves like this were popular with Civil War soldiers especialy officers as they allowered them to cook faster and easier then having to rely on a camp fire.This stove I think was made to use Kerosine or coal oil and has a wick assembly that can be raised and lowered by turning the small whel on the sside. For storage it can be lowered the cap screwed over it. The caps are brass but have not been buffed or monkeyed with. Stove measures about 4 1/4 inch across the base, sstands about 5 inch from bottom of the base to top of the iron pot suports. Fol;ding handle is about 3 1/4 inch long.
