What’s this tool??

Need help identifying this tool! When my grandfather passed a little over a year ago, I inherited some old tools he used to collect in his garage. This one I thought was interesting, and of course, I have no idea what it is! Any guesses?

This last one you can see there was a sticker or some type of emblem on the front but it is gone now.

    It is a pre-bottled gas blowtorch. You put in white gas (now known as coleman fuel). You fueled it and pumped it up like a coleman lamp or stove and then lit it up. My father was a plumber and I watched him use one of these many times in the late 50s and early 60s.
