    I purchased this antique gas pump in Cannes France. Its a beautiful piece and in amazing condition. It has a glass (or crystal) globe with a metal part on the bottom with a Paris address engraved on it. just over this engraved address there is a handle connected to some sort of measurement clock. Its connected to a pump with the writing "no 1" and a wooden handle to pump with. The bottom part is connected to an old metal pole. This item is a total question mark and I could not find anything similar ANYWHERE. It seems to be from the late 19th or very early 20th century. If you can give me more info or could refer me to the right person please share the info.
    Thank you!
