The Rayburn Number 1 was the first generation of ‘Rayburn’ cooker, introduced in 1946 and manufactured up to about 1958, when it was largely superceded by the introduction of the Rayburn Regent.
The difference between the two models is in the fire and ashpit doors. The old pattern had independent doors, whereas the new pattern had interlocking doors, where the ashpit door cannot be opened before the firedoor is opened.
The other feature that changed on these models was the grate, the old pattern had a single piece eight bar rectangular grate, the new pattern had a circular grate that was riddled from outside of the appliance.
