I love the beautiful, bright red Bakelite handle on this wonderful syrup dispenser! The dispenser is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or flea bites. The rayed bottom of the dispenser is marked “Made in USA”. The lid has a spring-loaded metal sliding cover for the spout and it works with silky smooth precision. There is no corrosion. The patent number on the lid dates this dispenser to 1932.
