  1. Hi,
    l have one almost just like this one. What’s different is:
    a. the spout sticks out with a bit sharper profile, and
    b. the handle is beveled into a six-sided shape, and it makes a concave curve up to a point, before turning downwards.

    My dad used it in graduate chemistry studies.
    I just received it from my late brother’s estate and I might like to sell it.
