    Light green glass bottle no markings with a brass turn valve. the bottle says full towards the bottom to read full it must be upside down and it clips into the bracket and is hung on a wall. I can't find anything on this item. Anyone have an idea what this is. Thank you

      I think that Collector's Weekly have nailed it when they showed fire Extinguishers in this page. When the valve of this bottle was turned, it not only released the contents of the Extinguisher but also created a Chemical Reaction in the bottle to expel the contents under pressure....voila! an early Fire Extinguisher that you hung in the Kitchen or close to a possible Fire Source.
