Exhibit description

This gas meter is a complex device, yet it is incredibly simple to use. Not only does it show how much gas was used but it is also equipped with an additional counter which calculated how many tokens remained.

The tokens, bought from the gasworks, were used to pay for a specific quantity of gas in advance.
