This is a very nice turn of the century ABC reel by Guibert & Cliff Co. Of New York City, and includes what I believe is a 50 x 2 1/2 Niagara fire hose (actual length including nozzle is 48), and a 5 NHR-15 solid brass nozzle by Wooster Brass. Cast iron reel is patent dated 1900, and has clearly been used, but was in pretty good condition when found with no cracks or damage to speak of, just wear. Most paint had been worn off when I acquired it, so I stripped it down to bare metal, primed and painted it, and applied a few thin coats of a high gloss protective enamel. It is a little bit cumbersome when the hose is wound up, as it likes to move around while being carried, so there might be a tiny speck of paint missing here and there from when I installed it on the stand shown in pictures.Stand is not included, but I have a good set of screws I used to fasten it to the stand which I will include for convenience. Im not sure of the age of the hose and nozzle, I imagine newer, best guess would be 60s or 70s, but that is merely a guess, all seems to be in good working condition other than what can be seen in pictures, however I did not run water through the hose, under pressure or otherwise, so I cannot make any guarantees as to its working condition other than to state what Ive observed. I bleached the hose and cleaned it with a pressure washer which did a very nice job of bringing it back to life without causing any damage whatsoever. There are sone fairly minor rust spots on the hose, and some dings on the nozzle and couplings, but no holes or tears in the hose that I can find. The reel itself is about 19 diameter by 10 wide.
Overall it is 29 out from the wall x 12 wide, and where is approximately 47 pounds. Also available at the time of this listing is an antique copper Universal fire extinguisher.
