  •   The Toledo Torch Toledo Ohio Pat. #1752708 or Smudge Pot

    A “Toledo Torch” was a kerosene “road flare.”
    Starting in 1929, The Toledo Pressed Steel Co. manufactured millions of small, round kerosene-burning torches (sometimes called smudge pots) that look like cartoon bombs.
    The Toledo Torch was widely used at road construction sites across the U.S., and other companies produced similar, competing devices.
    Although they have long since been replaced by flaming pink road flares and traffic barrels. 8 inches wide and 8 inches tall. Nice vintage condition surface rust only. Can be painted for a super nice item. Non working rxx
