Description:  ‘rocket’ shaped metal bulb holder with instruction panel attached with screws. Panel wording: ‘Pierce slowly & shake vigorously until gas bubbles cease to enter syphon. Then-BEFORE USE-REMOVE THIS HOLDER & BULB.’

Bulb Size:  C

Notes:  This is believed to be a rare transitional bulb holder used on the first syphons with the non-return gas valves. It looks like a panel was attached to the earlier plain ‘rocket’ bulb holder and may have been done as a temporary measure to use up old stock.
