Antique 1930s Rare Wire Mesh Covered Sparklets Soda Syphon
A good example of an art deco 1930s Sparklets Soda Syphon.
Produced for Sparklets, this would have been used in bars or clubs to pour soda, using gas bulbs to carbonate water for drinks.
With pewter mesh detailing encasing a thick and heavy glass bottle, these antique soda syphons are still extremely attractive today. The red band around the middle of the syphon is still very clear and in nice condition. The bulbs can also be purchased online if you want to replicate the original intent of the design, although we do not know if this soda syphon is still in working order. The glass straw has been replaced with a plastic alternative.
As with all vintage and antique pieces, this soda syphon does show signs of its age. There are patches of oxidisation in places across the mesh cover. This is focussed around the bottom rim. The nickel plate around the collar has also worn and has peeled away in a few places. However, in comparison to other similar syphons, this piece has worn well and looks very handsome on display. It would look fantastic as part of a home bar or on a drinks trolley.
Height, 34cm; Width, 10.5cm (at base, but it does broaden out in the middle)
