I found this hollow wire set up over the winter and have not been able to find much information on it. I have only every seen the ones that have just the gas tank and not the pressure tank. sadly this one no longer has the pressure tank either but there is proof that it is suppose to be there. What time frame do you guys think this set up was from? I am thinking it is from the late 20s/ early 30s toward the end of the hollow wire systems.

Pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Something like that was posted before. I think a salesman demo???  PM Warren. I think he was familiar with it.

There was a complete one like that in the old Coleman museum downtown but the museum is gone now. I heard they moved it but not certain yet as to where.

Not for hollow wire. Used for commercial stoves/ranges in restaurants. The directions on the bottom of the lid clearly explains how to use the system with the range. Notice the pressure regulator. The date looks like 4-38. Not much use for this big of hollow wire system during this time as electricity was plentiful in the cities by 1938. And to big for a residence.

Yes, I have one.  Mine came from the Sellers collection.

Is this the one that was on eBay a while ago, then disappeared without selling?  I figured someone contacted the seller and worked out a deal.  It was listed too high and I was waiting for the price to drop.

Not on eBay that I know of. I picked it up here locally.
