Sparklets Collectors Guide code: SCG/PBP-A-WM
Item name: Sparklet “B” Syphon
Detail: Glass bottle covered in wire mesh with pedestal base.
Markings: ‘Aerators Ltd, Makers, London’ on head.
Base markings: None
Produced: 1908 – 1914
Notes: This example is a very early model (est 1909-1914) with a non-plated head and no use instructions on collar. It has no red line to show the maximum fill level, so potentially could have overfilled and over-gassed! No non-return valve until 1934, so the ‘B’ bulb has to stay in place on the syphon when in use.
