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?

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...

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 :-)
