This is an empty vintage brass fire extinguisher made by the General Fire Extinguisher Co. and it is  model 85HD.  It is the 1 qt. size and is about 14" long and comes with it's original mounting bracket which has a new coat of maroon   paint.  It has been polished and lacquered and as you can see in the pictures, it displays very well.  Someone did a lot of work on the website "vintagefe"  and that site states that General fire extinguishers were featured in Chris-Craft accessories from 1937 to 1960.  This would be the correct extinguisher for a 1949 - 1952 Chris-Craft boat. The extinguisher has some small dings  on both sides of the brass label but don't show up well in the pictures, they are that small.  The T pump handle moves in and out as designed.  The brass label retains nearly all of it's original paint but some has faded over the last 60+ years. The would make a great addition to a collection or mounted on a vintage boat, car, or truck.  Please check out my other vintage fire extinguishers I have listed.

Unlike most people, when Michael Doyle drives past a herd of cattle grazing in a field, he doesn't see future tenderloins or T-bones. He sees fuel. The company Doyle co-owns, North Star Biofuels, is about to start production of biodiesel at a new $15 million, 20,000-square-foot plant in Watsonville, Calif., about 60 miles south of San Francisco.
