Details

15-037. French, early 3rd quarter 19th century, signed on the spigot handle "BRIET Bte, S.G.D.G., A PARIS." The gazogene features as a cryptic residential fixture at 221B Baker Street in Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. This one is identical to the one in the 221B Baker Street replica home in Los Angeles (http://221bbakerstreetla.com/bs_gasogene.asp) Made of three pieces of heavy hand blown glass, with pewter fixtures, and standing 17 3/4" tall overall. The 6 3/8" diameter base is made of milk glass; the lower glass vessel is 4 1/2" tall x 3 7/8" diameter and the upper glass vessel is 7 5/8" tall x 5 3/8" diameter, with a pewter piece between the two vessels which holds the spigot. The two glass vessels are covered with woven cane to keep the glass from exploding if the vessels are damaged.
