New York in the 1920s
Emblematic of the "Roaring Twenties" in the United States, New York was transformed into one of the largest and most dazzling cities in the world. Jazz culture, skyscrapers - like the Empire State Building - and the financial world shot up side by side in the city's lively streets.
It is the era of the legendary Great Gatsby, with all its decadence and debauchery, which came to an abrupt end in the most famous crash in stock market history, the Black Friday.
Due to their age and low quantity produced, our Sparklet New York Soda Siphons are a rare legacy of the era. Made locally in New York, "Made in USA", in a subsidiary of the original Sparklets London company.
As a symbol of social status, sales of Sparklets siphons exploded in 1925 and 1926, and soda siphons also made appearances in the film industry, seen in numerous movies between 1930 and 1960. What a legacy!
A Hand-restored Original
Every single soda siphon we restore is an original from the 1920s. These were made to very high standards of durability and workmanship at the time.
All spare parts we use are either original or have been manufactured by us specifically for this purpose. In this way, we ensure that the original condition is preserved as far as possible.
Included in Delivery
The soda siphon is the so-called C-type - characteristic of the 1920s models, the bulb holder must remain on the soda siphon during operation. The mouth-blown glass bottle with wire mesh was manufactured in Czechoslovakia between 1920 and 1930.
