A ‘Standard English Seltzongenes’, made soley by The British Syphon M’F’G’ Co. London.

Patent 15686.

Double gourd shape with wire mesh, polished nickel mounts.

Height:55cm


The gourd shape had a purpose, the top section was used for Tartaric Acid and Bicarbonate of soda (which reacted to create Carbon Dioxide) with the bottom section being used for water or other substance which needed to be made sparkling. The resultant gas would then force the water up through the glass tube attached to the nozzle.
