    Hi Frode and welcome to the forum. That is a very nice find, especially with the complete original box. If you find another don't hesitate to let me know. ;) :mrgreen:

    It's interesting to note that the spirit can and the spare parts box apear to have come from Primus in Sweden. Maybe some of the parts on the lantern also came from Primus, like the control wheel.

    Hello Nils

    Yes it was a lucky find at a fleamarket in Oslo a few years back.
    It seams correct that the accessories came from Sveden.
    I think Høvik Verk only manufactured the stamped out parts, tank and so on.
    And did the assembly.
    I do not now the age of the lantern though.

    Frode

    There were two basic variations of the HV1082. The one you have is the second one. That would put it from the later half of the 1950s until they stopped making them in 1961.
