This style of unusual soda syphon was specially made by Sparklets of London for the UK market. It features a chrome plated metal over-jacket covering a thick glass bottle inside. Both the overjacket and head have been re-plated in chrome to recreate the original look it would have had in the late 40's and 50's. The head has been re-chromed and is fully reconditioned, making this a fully usable and very impressive item for your vintage bar. Chargeable just like a normal Type D syphon and containing 2 US pints of soda water (about 0.95 litres). A HD video clip of this syphon has been posted to YouTube: https://youtube.com/shorts/E61ieIyEKy4
After arriving with us in a rather dirty and neglected condition with significant loss of chrome from both the aluminium jacket and head it has now been cleaned and reconditioned in our workshop. The rather tired head, which was suffering from severe loss of the chrome plating has now been fully re-plated with chrome and reconditioned back to fully working condition. It is supplied with an original glass straw/tube and suitable neck seal plus an original type D soda syphon charger key. If the purchaser does not want the copper coloured top-cap the current head can be exchanged for one with a polished aluminium top cap at no extra cost.

Sparklets Type D "De Luxe" - fully renovated
This soda syphon will have been cleaned both internally and externally during the reconditioning process and all the rubber seals used in the head have been checked. Where necessary, the original components have been reconditioned but where broken parts were found specially re-manufactured items may have been used.
The capacity of this syphon is nominally 1 US quart or 950ml of soda water. Care should be taken not to overfill the syphon with water (or gas; only use 1 CO2 capsule) during charging as this may lead to a potentially dangerous mal-operation of the syphon and substantial high-pressure leaks. Unless otherwise specifically stated in the instructions that come with each syphon, only a single CO2 capsule should be used to charge a syphon! Each syphon comes with an one year return-to-base guarantee.
