Caption

Silver sick syphon dating from around 1820, England. This was essentially a 'straw' through which the invalid (or elderly person) could suck liquid food. The perforated end prevented large pieces of food from entering the tube which may cause choking. The hook, mid-way up the tube was designed to clip over the edge a cup containing the food to hold the sick syphon in place.
