Fire Door Hanger

I have a fascination with hardware and fixtures, especially those produced in a day when the information about the device and its manufacturer were forged into the product. According to the item this was a "fire door hanger" which, believe it or not was holding up an old fire door. The design for this hanger was patented in the early 1900's.
