You are bidding on a Unique Vintage Fire Hose Rack. This rack was made in 1884 and likely was used on a horse drawn fire engine . It would add an authentic look and a focal point in your home. * Wall mounted cast iron fire hose holder was for use on a truck or building. The mounting bracket is missing. *My research shows that this is a rare item. *It would hold 75 feet of flat hose. I found a similar rack in an ad . *Marked in the casting "J. C. N. GUIBERT N. Y. PAT'D MAY 13 1884 TRADE GUIBERT MARK.". *The rack is 13" tall and sticks out from the wall 27" and 5 1/2" wide across the widest place. *It looks like they ran out of Black paint when they were painting the rack. Oh well, I guess lazy in not a new idea! *Look close at all the pictures to be sure the condition is what you expect. Great PATINA. Sticks to magnet.
