Double Cup Measure

hover over image to zoom

A double measure made of turned boxwood and marked for its size; 5 S, the most frequently found size of these things due to its use in the latter part of the 19th century for measuring powders when making soda water in a Gasogene. English circa 1900.

The Gasogene (or gazogene or seltzogene) is a late Victorian device for producing carbonated water. It consists of two linked glass globes: the lower contained water or other drink to be made sparkling, the upper a mixture of tartaric acid and sodium bicarbonate that reacts to produce carbon dioxide.
