Description: Syphon jar, which resembles a large seltzer bottle but is wrapped in a metal mesh and has red mark at the top just below the neck. A metal cylinder is contained in a housing which is fitted to the handle and which has two wings. The handle can be depressed to emit the water which has been enriched with the radioactive gas from the cylinder. There is a glass tube from the spout to the bottom of the bottle. The descriptive literature shown on this page is interesting and provides insight into its supposed properties.
