In a time where the public craved amusement and longed for pomp and extravagance, London experienced a cultural revolution that would modernize it in a multitude of ways. Seltzer water had always been an essential ingredient of cocktails popular at the time, which made it easy for the Sparklets London Soda Siphon to persuade the young generation.

London in the 1930s

In the 1930s London thrived in its resilience against the global economic crisis. Population numbers in the city boomed as electricity and automobiles replaced gas lamps and horse carriages. The Art Deco movement gained traction and popularity in painting, furniture- and industrial design, as well as architecture.

In contrast to poverty and unemployment elsewhere in the country, Londoners danced to “Knees Up Mother Brown” performed by live bands in dance halls. Soda Siphons were an increasingly common sight in restaurants with dance floors and highly appreciated.

For Sparklets London, it was the time to present the “D-Type” Sparklets London Soda Siphon which would succeed the previous “C-Type”. This new seltzer bottle was produced in larger numbers than ever before, which speaks of its popularity at the time.

The golden era of film began when the first motion pictures were released in color. Now Sparklets Soda Siphons were a regular guest in features like “The Three Stooges” or “The Marx Brothers”.

A hand restored original

Each of these Soda Siphons is an original from the 1930s. It was manufactured to meet very high demands towards quality and durability no longer prevalent in industrial production today.

All spare parts used during the restoration are either original or were custom made on site for this purpose. This way we ensure that the original state of the soda siphon is preserved to the highest possible degree.

An original reimagined

    This is a 1930s “D-Type” Soda Siphon, a design based on the 1920s C-Type, but with several technological advances for the sophisticated English market: A valve that allows the bulb holder to be removed during use, a chrome plated top and collar and a durable coating on the wire mesh. The glass bottle was mouth blown in former Czechoslovakia between 1930 and 1940 and is covered in a corrosion resistant wire mesh. Specifically developed for the English market, this soda siphon rests on a conical glass base.

    Today, we find the Sparklets London Soda Siphons we restore mostly in the UK and other countries of the Commonwealth. This is owed to their popularity during colonial times where the upper class made use of the antibacterial effect of carbonization to enjoy clean water and refreshing Gin Tonics in tropical climates.
