All the Swedish and British stoves of this type I've seen have the makers name and a model number stamped onto the upper surface of the fuel tank, and a very small number / letter code on the underside of the tank which indicates the date of manufacture. If you can find at least the model number and let me know, I may be able to give you a lot more information about the stove.
