Fire Insurance Marker

A precursor to home insurance, fire markers like this one were once hung on the outside of homes to show fire fighters that your fire tax had been paid, thereby ensuring attempts to put out the flames. Rumor has it that no marker meant the fire department would simply watch your house burn. 17" H x 13" W, 18 lbs. Patina may vary with the nature of this piece.
