Antique Victorian / Edwardian Sommelier or wine growers testing kit for Bottled wine. Not sure how it works properly but that is what I was told it was when I bought it yesterday. It has a large Silver or chrome plated suction spring and a double tap earlier plastic cork, three large piercing bars, 3 smaller ones. and 8 tape fittings. End of syringe fitting is marked I and A. All in fitted linen and velvet lined dark cotton covered box with Art Nouveau style button clips. MAKER : Maker marked on the plunger part of syringe Haupiner CONDITION : In Good Used Condition for age. AGE : Victorian / Edwardian SIZE : Size of box 10" x 5" x 1½" high . Size of Syringe 8" long closed. Size of long push spikes 5½" long.
Assuming it is, as described, for testing wine, what would they be testing exactly? How would it work? Any idea of value?
