Ok, another shaker style extinguisher. Found in my grandparents home years ago. My father rescued it and it's been sitting on the shelf in the basement begging to have it's history told. I see others are just as perplexed as to the origin of these products.

Gotta love when any instruction regarding saving your life and valuables includes the word "hurl"...

Anybody have any history of this one or theirs?
