Well-spotted Chris, it does look like Weller. Is there another word before that  too?

I'm still inclined toward some sort of valve - perhaps a pressure release valve for a gas rather than a flow valve for a liquid?

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Gottit!!!

Pamela, you were right.  A mustard pump is what it is!

Argit is the manufacturer.  What's the betting that a Mr Herrmann Weller once ran a cafe in Mulhouse...

Thank you ALL so much for your time and for identifying this curiousity !  
I am so pleased  :D
is there a family Weller I could contact perhaps for further info?
I am asking because I am not completely happy with the mustard versiion

I know what you mean, Pamela.  I have my own doubts, too.  It seems an unnecessarily weird way to dispense mustard.  

But there are quite a few such items on eBay France, and they're all down as "moutardiers".  

Of course, maybe there's a French version of Miller's and everyone has taken what they say as gospel truth :-)
