Primus stove

It is impossible to imagine the Kitchen of «the odd flat», as, indeed, any communal kitchen of the 1920-30«s, without this significant item. The word „primus“ derives from the name of the Swedish company „Primus“ which was the first to start producing these kerosene stoves. Although such stoves were also manufactured in Germany, America, England and China, and even in the Soviet Union. Primus was not only an attribute of the cat Behemoth in „The Master and Margarita“. This menacing, hissing, explosive device appeared in literature of the 1920-30„s quite often.
