Early Chief's Hand Painted Front High Eagle Cairns & Bros. Fire Helmet :
Early 1870's hand painted Chief's (front) Cairns & Bros. high eagle. This non ventilated helmet is missing its paper label. This is a very sturdy working helmet with its original liner and brass eagle. It appears that the front shield is original to the helmet, the holes on the front and helmet are matching with no other additional holes as pictures show. I could not find a name of an original owner anywhere or a name of any department on it. Great piece of Americana good luck offerding.
