Product Details

 

In by-gone years, some municipalities had for-profit Fire Departments. These firefighters would only fight fires for those who could and would pay for the job. One way to pay for the job was to have fire insurance.

As proof of fire insurance, the insurance companies had expensive cast iron plaques manufactured, they would install a plaque on the front of the house or business to show the for-profit Fire Department that the building owner had fire insurance that would pay the department for their efforts.

I feel that these are reproductions, if not... we are all getting a deal.

Each of these cast iron metal fire insurance plaques measures about 3 1/4" x 2 3/4".

  1. #1 Shows a fire hydrant and fire hose with the text F A 1817
  2. #2 Is a very old fire truck with text U F
  3. #3 Is a man blowing on a horn and the text coming from the horn is Fire
  4. #4 Show 4 clasped hands and the date 1792
  5. #5 Is an eagle with the text I.N.A. 1792
  6. #6 Is a tree and No. 105

I feel certain that some truly creative person can come up with something amazing to do with these cast iron medallions or plaques.

Each has a hole for hanging and they show some minimal wear to the paint on the front.
