Vintage Brass Pyrene Fire Extinguisher.
A very attractive compact old fire extinguisher most commonly used in automobiles. The body of the extinguisher is brass with instructions on the front. This hand pump brass fire extinguisher was manufactured around 1930's and has been used and is therefore empty. There is a fill cap located at the top of the fire extinguisher, a pump handle, top and bottom ribs and an indented elongated ribbed back. The manufacture of this wonderful antique fire extinguisher is 'the Pyrene Company Ltd., 9 Grosvenor Gardens, London, Sw1'. Embossed on the front of the brass extinguisher are 'Reg. Design No. 650393 1915, and Reg No. 349735 1913' and 'Patent No. 7296 1910, 196846 1922'. It is in lovely condition with just a small dent to one side and it comes with the original metal hanging bracket.
