What is this?

I have this machine from Hendricks gin. I’m not sure exactly what it does but it seems that if you turn the handle it will draw liquid from one glass and deposited in another. The number on it is 001. So it is obviously the first one made ( possibly the only one) and I am trying to find out what I can about it. I would appreciate any help I could get.

Without a larger picture it is difficult to try to tease the true function of the contraption.

Worse yet, Hendricks gin seems to delight in the Steampunk, and Rube-Goldbergesque devices, so you machine may very well be anything from a "precise transfer of controlled liquid volume conveyed from one vessel to another"  or "Drain the gin from one glass to the next".  As I viewed the sights, I would like to drive around the cucumber mobile for a while, but as I am allergic to gin (for reals), it may turn into the Cuke and Pu_ _
Mobile".   :(  alas.       gregor

From what little i can see, it looks like it may be a “decanting machine” ie a device that sfaely pumps liquid from a large container ( ie gallon jug of ale) to a much smaller vessel ( ie half pint glass” .

With such a rig, it is not only sanitary ( if kept washed) but also alleviates spillage and messes when trying to pout form a multigallon jug! ( ask me how I know lol)
