This is a commercial soda-water syphon, used on cocktail bars; in the United Kingdom, for customers to add their own preferred amount of soda-water to their whisky.

Thank you for all your guesses! Answer: Better than diet coke? Siphon – used to carbonate water for drinks.

Seltzer bottle...much fancier than Clarabell the Clown used on "The Howdy Doody Show." In fact, looks like something from a movie set.

A seltzer bottle is obvious answer, but I'll go out the box and guess a small fire extinguisher.

Used for carbonated water in your drinks, the mesh covering was to reduce finger prints and stickieness
