A tall slim vintage fire extinguisher mounted on a board.
This red and gold coloured fire extinguisher was manufactured by the Richmond Chemical Company, Silver Spring, Maryland, U.S.A. It is a metal tube, 22 inches long and 2 inches in diameter, with a metal ring on the top end.
This is a tubular dry-powder fire extinguisher. The instructions for use and the company’s guarantee are written on the tube.
A number of fire extinguishers were invented over the centuries, using compressed air, water, gasses, chemicals or a combination.
There are some surface scratches where the fire extinguisher clips onto the back board and a small dent in the same area. This is shown in the photographs.
Please remember when buying vintage items, they will have signs of use but that is also what makes them so unique. We do our best to photograph and explain the condition of the item as best we can. If you have any questions about a particular item, please contact us. Please take the time to look at all pictures.

Styling: Would look great in any bar, man cave, hotel, industrial or retail setting. Would make a nice historical item for a fire house too.
