|Plenty of fancy embellishments on this pump in
Hardwicke, Glos: floral motifs on the pump head and cap, a rose around the
handle fulcrum, a nice scrolled bucket hook,
and the finial seems to be in the form of a mace.
Markings: "Beck & Co Lt London", on barrel, and "Beck & Co Ltd Engineers London Patent Antifreezing Pump" around the rim of the cap.
Manufacturer: Beck & Co, London.
