Sparklets Collectors Guide code: SCG/PCF-WM
Item name: Sparklet “C” Syphon
Detail: Glass bottle covered in wire mesh with flat base.
Markings: ‘Sparklets Ltd makers London’ on head. ‘C Size’, ‘Shake syphon well while piercing bulb’ & ‘Never fill syphon above red line’ on collar
Base markings: 559 on example shown (this syphon was also issued with other 3-digit base markings. I do not know what these markings refer to, but guess they relate to the batch number, or factory where they were produced).
Notes: Capacity 5 glasses. This syphon needed to have the bulb in place during use to stop the gas escaping. It is larger version of the Sparklet “B” Syphon. Takes bulb size C, code SCG/BUC-NN. Also came with a pedestal base. Retailed at 4/- in 1909.
