This auction is for an antique Shur-Stop glass fire grenade extinguisher wall mounted metal kit that would be an excellent addition to any fire memorabilia collection. This box would hold clear glass fire grenade bulbs when mounted to the wall for easy access in case of a fire. No fire grenades are included with this box, but I often see these grenades listed for sale on eBay, so you could complete this kit over time.
The patent listed on the label was registered in 1933. The box itself and the label are in good condition, but the paint on the top, bottom and sides of the box is peeling and could be repainted easily. The latch works well and the paint on the inside of the box is in good condition.
The label on the front reads:
"For Fire, Shur Line International Shur-Stop Kit
Throw Extinguishers At Base of Flame
International Fire Equipment Corporation, Staten Island , NY
U.S. Pat. No. 1914710
Made In U.S.A. "
I will have other fire grenades and extinguishers up for auction, so please view my other items for sale. I will combine shipping on multiple auction wins. Shipping for this item can be calculated below using USPS Priority Mail for 8 lbs to your zip code. I charge no handling or packing fees and insurance is optional. I will pack this extremely well, but I cannot be held responsible for damage during shipping. Please send me any questions you have and good luck bidding!
