Picked this one up at the Toowoombah Swap this year, have never seen one previously. It was made by White Industries of Dalby Q.L.D.
Fella I bought it from seemed to know a little about them, he said that they where made in limited numbers, mostly for employees.
Thought it deserves a place here in the History section.

Interesting design for sure.  If they were established in the sixties then they would possibly be the same vintage as Furphy camp ovens.

They make at least a couple of different sizes. They also cast a line of ovens for a chap up on the Atherton Tablelands.
