Enots Sprayer

Pumps and sprayers allow for pesticides to be distributed widely. This is cylindrical pump sprayer used for spreading fungicide or insecticide, it is made from copper with a brass trim. There is a brass knob which was used to pump the liquid through the spout which is unfortunately broken and therefore shorter than it would have been when it was in use. The small brass plate has the ‘ENOTS’ trademark of Benton & Stone (Enots is Stone spelled backwards) who were based in Aston, near Birmingham. The company was founded in 1814 and the sprayer dates from 1850 to 1900.
