A fascinating old Victorian item of German origin that apparently was used as a dust cleaner. It measures 19" in length and has a diameter of 2 1/2" and looks like a large piping syringe...pull the plunger out and the dust is sucked into the cylinder.The item is made of wood and has very ornate scroll and engraving covering it. Some small damage on end of nozzle.. A nice Kitchenalia display item.
