19th century

Cast iron base--painted black. Has an intake tube prutruding from one side. Collar and 2 supports attach to a second tube--hollow, but closed at the end away from the base. This bronze tube has 19 small holes--closer together at end, wider spaces in the middle. It is bent shortly after leaving the base--so it and the holes are parallel to the table.

Overall: 6 in. (15.24 cm)
