Dri Gas Fire Extinguisher Co. Chattanooga Tn. Directions(3rd pic) Throw Forcibly at Base of Fire by Quick Swinging Motions.Embossed letters and quilted glass. Still has chemical and orignal bracket. Just found more info from oldfirestuff that these were used on the railroad and does have a good value as a fire collectible. thanks and enjoy.

    That is a really nice piece!! I have never seen one like it before. It might have carbon tet in it.

    Thanks packrat. I got an email from a collector of fire fighting stuff. He has one and says the chemical is simply called Dri-Gas and that these are highly sought after. You could be right on carbon tet. Probably didn,t have to disclose chemical used back then.
