Vintage Sparklets Wire Mesh Soda Syphon

Vintage Sparklets Wire Mesh Soda Syphon

This is a rare vintage Sparklets wire mesh soda syphon with a heavy glass body and chrome-plated pewter top and flat base.

It is the Standard “D” Syphon that was manufactured between 1934-1955, by Sparklets Limited, a London based company, founded in 1896.

The chrome top is stamped “Sparklets Ltd  Makers London” and the letter “D” referring to the model. The base has the numbers “984” etched into the glass, probably as a production batch number.

The chain would have originally held a cap to cover the top of the inlet valve and the red line denotes the maximum fill line, before the water is carbonated.

Soda syphons were hugely popular in the Mid 20th Century, but now this piece would look good nestled with bottles and glasses in a home bar, or as a prop in a pub or bar.

Sold as a decorative piece only, the soda syphon is in good condition, though the wire mesh has dulled over the years and there is light corrosion to the chrome-plated top.
