This Montrose Major Aquarium Air Pump is a nice quirky piece of design in bakelite. For a utilitarian item meant to go with a Goldfish tank or aquarium this is a good piece of design. Manufactured by C T Cutler these were made in both brown and green, this green version is the more unusual of the 2 colours.

There is nothing to indicate an age but I would think it dates from the 1940's or 50's. It is in good condition and still has the original box and guarantee. I think the pump has hardly been used.

Overall size of pump is approx 100mm long, 50mm wide and 65mm high.
Although it is most likely still fully working it is sold as a collectors item only.

This pump is now sold.

Price: £20.00 SOLD.
Postage & packing for UK £3.50.
