Bottle up Scottish independence with stamps

Wiltshire Business Online:

11:16am Thursday 11th September 2014

How do you put out a fire? Grab a extinguisher and douse it in water, foam or chemical powder, right?  Well, 100 years ago they used fire extinguishers fuelled by sulphuric acid to tackle the blaze. These so-called soda acid extinguisher were patented in 1866, and the 11 examples of glass extinguisher vials going under the hammer at Moore Allen & Innocent’s auction of antiques in Cirencester next Friday, September 19, date from the turn of the 20th century. The candle-shaped blue, brown and clear glass vials were placed into a conical-shaped fire extinguisher, which was filled with water. When a plunger broke open the capsules, which contain sulphuric acid and baking soda, the resulting chemical explosion caused a jet of water to shoot at the fire. Conical fire extinguishers pop up regularly at auction but the original glass vials – these are by Minimax of Feltham, Middlesex - are far more unusual due to their fragile nature, and should achieve between £200 and £300.  Speaking of Burns, the auction takes place the day after Scottish nationalists bid for independence.  Whether the Scots give them the stamp of approval remains - at time of writing - to be seen, but meanwhile the union between the British nations is celebrated in a collection of First Day covers. The collection includes no fewer than 29 First Day Covers marking the 650th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath – another declaration of Scottish independence, made in 1320. The 5d stamps were issued in April 1970. The collection also includes First Day Covers celebrating the ninth British Commonwealth Games, held in Edinburgh in 1970, while a set from July 1971 featuring includes Sir Walter Scott, a February 1970 set celebrating British architecture includes Fife harling alongside Ulster thatch, Welsh stucco and local Cotswold limestone, and a set championing urban renewal, issued in April 1984, includes Perth alongside Liverpool, Bristol and Durham.  A bid of between £30 and £50 should secure the lot. A full auction catalogue can be viewed at
