About this item

The Harden Star water bottle fire-extinguisher/fire-grenade was the most popular brand of fire grenades in the 19th through to the 20th century. With it's deep, cobalt blue glass and nicely cast shape it's an incredibly attractive thing for something with such a functional purpose.
As evidenced by their design, these grenades were single use items - as such they've become incredibly rare.
This particular example is a relatively early design; on the front it's got the Harden Star logo and around the middle band it's inscribed 'Harden Star Hand Grenade'. On the other side of the band it's marked 'Fire Extinguisher' and to the base it has 'Reg'd No 10490'. Later models lost some of the detail/embellishment such as the registration number.
Around 80% of the liquid is still present, if turned upside-down the cork will start to weep. Condition is otherwise excellent.
The fire extinguisher stands 16.5cm high and is around 11cm wide.
