The season is spring on this side of the pond and time for me to sort through the multitude of boxes that clutter my workshop and a wooden out building or two. In one of the boxes I came across the item in the picture. Now before those of you with very fertile imaginations try to insert the battery into the larger object and come up with an adult toy the battery is there for size comparison. The battery is “AA” the other item is far older than any modern battery and started life approximately one hundred years ago, its function in life was used to prevent a very typical British problem. These items where supplied in boxes of a dozen I believe, sold by gun makers to large estates, and this is the only one I have personally known about or seen in the flesh so to speak, so any of you folks over on the other side of the pond any ideas…….
What it is?
Who made it?
And the big big question what gun maker retailed it?
I will post the answer in a couple of days’ time.
