Product Description
Witness the unmistakable charm of this antique Barthel burner, crafted from a combination of brass and iron. Originating from 1930s Germany, this beautiful industrial vintage piece is in a charmingly worn state, contributing to its decorative allure. The original metal label on the handle, stating "Barthel 0296 Benzin - Benzine," attests to its authentic origin, and the side proudly bears the simple "Barthel" marking.

Originally designed to operate on petrol or kerosene, it is affectionately referred to as a petrol burner. This predecessor to modern gas burners primarily served for soldering work and remains a splendid decorative object, perfect for enhancing a man cave or any collection.

A Barthel petrol burner is more than just a decorative collectable; it is a tangible piece of history. In the 1930s-50s, this type of burner was a highly sought-after item, especially in the metal industry.

The antique soldering burner, like this Barthel variant, was indispensable for joining metals through soldering. This process involved melting two pieces of metal using a fusible alloy such as tin or lead. The adjustable burner nozzle gave the user complete control over the flame temperature, while a special soldering point or needle was used to concentrate the heat on the joint to be soldered.

These antique soldering burners were invaluable in various sectors, from the metal industry and machinery construction to tool repairs and even the crafting of exquisite jewellery. Plumbers and electricians also gratefully used these burners to expertly connect pipes and wires. Discover the past with this unique Barthel petrol burner and add a touch of history to your living space.

Measuring 19 cm in height, 23 cm in length, and with a diameter of 8.5 cm, this weathered copper Barthel petrol burner is a valuable piece of history.

This burner is in a used condition with age-related signs of wear. Refer to the attached photos for a good understanding of its current condition.
