    Looking at some of my older books on collectibles, it appears that around 1870 the first firemans helmet had what appeared to be 'grape vines' scrolling on the rear portion of the brim. Later as this new type of helmet was introduced and excepted, more types of scrolling appeared on the helmet brims.
