I bought this from an antic store a few days ago. They did not know much about it, but they did say it was from the 18th Century. It came with the three 1 ounce shot glasses that match the cut of the base. There are no markings of any kind on it. I would like to know if anyone can confirm the time period or if anyone has even seen one before. It did not work when I bought it because the leather pump seal was damaged from age. I replaced it with a custom cut rubber seal replacement and it works great. One pump equals one 1 ounce shot.

    Many of these were made in the 1950's. My grandmother had one just like it.

    The pattern is "Constellation" made by Indiana Glass Company, circa 1940s to 1950s. The three small glasses match it, the taller plain ones do not go with the set.
