The small wicker basket of this Picnic Set has a label for Sirram however, it appears that the crockery and cutlery has been removed and replaced with a Primus Stove.

The owner has modified the set for his own purposes and presumably upgraded the spirit heater in the set. The Sirram picnic sets were produced by the George Marris & Co. of Bull Street, Birmingham after 1906. The company started as manufacturers of iron and brass bed parts and pots in the 19th century. The name Sirram is Marris backwards. Aside from the label to the basket, the kettle also has a brass plaque to it and the distinctive Sirram threaded caps to the lid and spout.

The set has 5 tins to take the ingredients needed for drinks and food for a picnic. The Primus Stove retains its original tin along with the instruction sheet for both its use and packing away. The Primus Stove was developed in 1892 by the Swede Frans Linqvist and he quickly partnered with Johan Svenson to manufacture it. They sold the exclusive rights shortly after to BAHCO. The Primus was a great success and produced for many years. The tin in this Sirram Picnic set can be dated to 1935 from its markings. Picnic Sets became very popular with motorists in the early 20th century with a number of well know luggage manufactures producing them. Circa 1935.
