London in the 1930s
In the 1930s, London resisted the Great Depression. The city's population boomed, electricity and automobiles replaced gas lighting and carriages. The Art Deco movement - a new style of art - became popular in painting, furniture design and architecture.
In contrast to the pervasive poverty and unemployment everywhere else, Londoners danced to "Knees Up Mother Brown" sung by live bands in dance halls and parks. Restaurants offered dance floors and live music; there Sparklets soda siphons were more present than ever and highly appreciated.
It was also time for the Sparklets London Corporation to present the D-Type of the siphon, a successor to the C-Type that appeared in the 1920s. The new Sparklets London soda siphons were produced in large quantities.
The great era of cinema dawned when the first color films appeared. Now soda siphons were a frequent guest in films of the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges. A glamorous era for Sparklets London Soda Siphons!

Included in Delivery
This soda siphon is the so-called D-Type. This is a technical development of the C-Type model of the 1920s. A new feature is the check valve, which allows the capsule holder to be removed during operation. The hand-blown glass bottle with more corrosion-resistant wire mesh was manufactured in Czechoslovakia between 1930 and 1940. A bottle with a tapered foot was developed especially for the market in Great Britain.
