Picked this up today along with some other stuff.

Not sure what this was used for - maybe held towels on an island pole?

Can someone educate me - Thanks!

Depending on the dimensions it could be for a fire extinguisher

Not sure but it's cool. I doubt it was a towel dispenser. Would be useful to figure out if it could lock or not, too bad the handle is gone. Seems strange they make a fancy box like that for a fire extinguisher but maybe?

Whatever it was used for, it was mounted to the wall horizontally (due to the orientation of the logo, and the overlapping metal on the back - only on 3 sides).

Truck mounted with Flares (the old round kerosene type) maybe. Most of the sets I have are in metal boxes.
