I have been combing through the internet trying to find out information about an old Guardian fire extinguisher that I have owned for 25 years.

If someone could give me even a rough idea of when this was manufactured and what approximate value this might have to interested collectors, I would be most grateful. Here are the particulars:

Vintage Copper & Brass Guardian Fire Extinguisher - Empty
2.5 gallon loose stopper type No. A Serial Number 943912
Brass and copper cladding in good to very good condition
No dents or pitting – a few minor scratches
Hose has surface cracks
No oxidization on brass or copper - I think it must have been lacquered
Brass plate lettering is bilingual (English-French)
Measures 24” tall by 7 1/4” in diameter

I know from the bilingual lettering that this was probably manufactured in Canada - where I live.

Thank you for your help.
