On festive occasions or town parades of the day, firemen dressed in their most colorful uniforms trying to outdo each others party. Lavish helmets and uniforms, fancy fire axes, decorative parade torche, and painted stovepipe-shaped "fire hats", fancy painted fire buckets and engraved silver speaking trumpets were commissioned for these parades. If they had a hand pumper, it too was decorated often by celebrated artists.
