    Hydrometer, that's what I thought too when I first seen it, then I noticed the cork.

    It's Hungarian for absolutely certain; the writing is all in that language. I think it's for tasting wine straight from the barrels as Mansons mentioned.

    I think you're right. From lake Balaton, a beautiful wine growing region in western Hungary. The firm (export?) seems to be based in Budapest.
    I may have sampled wine from this while staying in the region. I remember a strange wine tasting night in the 80s, when a Hungarian tried to get me to smuggle him across the border. I didn't fancy spending the rest of my life in a Hungarian jail, besides, he had been an extreme pain in the neck before, so I refused.
