When I Googled I found out that these particular hand grenades were fire extinguishers and they were thrown at the base of fire so the glass would smash and release chemicals to put out the fire. Most date from 1870 to 1910. Rare, since they were made to be destroyed, and very collectable. So when you are browsing in antique shops, look out for them!

All very interesting Susie, a great question!
