What is this?

I found this at a estate sale, didn't look closely and initially thought it was a cream dispenser. But what would be the CO2 connection is wrong and it has a spray nozzle. I have looked everywhere, and its driving me nuts. It only says max.0.51 and number 7980 no other labels. Thanks for any input!

  1. The max is probably Bar, as in European style of measuring air pressure instead of psi. Bar is in regards to atmospheric pressure - 14.7 psi at sea level. More pictures may be helpful.

      1. That hexagonal thing in the middle looks like it couldn't be anything other that a connector valve from a pressurized cylinder which would be attached to some sort of delivery device. I work with a pressurized wine preservation device and I see these in most pressurized cylinders I come across. The word 'bar' wwould support this.

        I agree that more pictures would help, as I'm not sure what the two-armed part is connected to as I can't see it. It 'looks like' the valve is coming off the top of a pressurized cylinder at an angle, and the hooked arms are to support/lock? to a delivery part. A "cream dispenser' seems like a good guess. JMHO.
