It took a while to work out what it's for. But i'm fairly sure this is a stainless steel sampling bottle, for dipping into liquids, to collect a sample from the bottom.
It is very heavy bottomed, so will sink through even the thickest of liquids. Please see the photos and feel free to ask any questions. And with 128 inches, over 10 foot or 3.2 metres, of stainless steel chain, that's some deep liquid.It has a very useful large cork on the end, so you'll not loose the chain, if you do drop it? And then there are a couple of interesting marks on the base. It would make sense that they would have sampling bottles, to check fuel quality in tankers, and the like. And then there appears to be a makers mark. Rollason were an English company, specialising in aircraft building.
I'm not 100% sure this is the same company, but they would of had the engineering skills to make a bottle like this. I know this bottle is a bit of a curio item, i'm not sure i would use this officially to sample anything, but it has to be a rarity.I'm not sure you will find many of these? There are a few marks on the bottle, and the inside is rather dusty strangely, but i'm sure this will polish up beautifully, if that was your desire.
But perhaps with all the polution in our rivers, there might be a need for this yet? It stands 11 inches tall to the cork and weighs 1.7 kilos. I will pack it very carefully for travel.
Thanks for looking and i'm always open to reasonable offers. Do please checkout my other items and feedback.
