Provenance

We can't find any markings on this lovely little cookset to indicate who might have made it and when, though it has the 'air' of military about it and we suspect it dates from the early 1900's, possibly Boer War or the First World War. It could also be part of a larger 'Campaign Set'
It's beautifully made and runs on methylated spirit. Founder member of our collection, Mick Tighe, acquired it somewhere along the way and donated it.
