Vintage W. S. Nott Copper/brass Soda Acid Fire Extinguisher:
This is an empty copper soda acid fire extinguisher made by the Pyrene Mfg. Co. for the W.S. Nott Company of Minneapolis, MN. It is the 2 1/2 gal. size and stands about 2' tall. The tank is copper and the lid, letter plant and hose clamp are brass. This has no dings and no dents, not bad for something this old. The extinguisher has been polished and lacquered for years of care free enjoyment. W.S. Nott made their own extinguishers from 1920 to 1940 and after that Pyrene made them with the Reliance and W.S. Nott name on the label. The hose is in good condition with a lead nozzle. This comes with it's acid bottle holder, acid bottle, and lead stop. This would look great on a vintage W. S. Nott fire truck. W.S. Nott Co. started in Minneapolis in 1879 and manufactured some of the best steam pumpers of the time. They also produced some very fine motorized apparatus. New York cities first motorized pumper was a W. S. Nott. The last Nott pumper was made in the late 1930's. Please check out my store for other vintage fire extinguishers.
