I recently aquired this neat old oil pump at an estate sale. I buy quite a bit of old gas & oil advertising- and have never seen one of these. it has a folding lid, almost resembles a large domed galvanized trash can. on the front side, atop the old red paint kendall refinery co Bradford pa is stenciled, also has stenciling atop the flip lid. Features a handle on each side for carrying. I believe this is a type of oil drum? Possibly from an early refinery? It has the pump present atop the spout, and telescopes down to act as a pump. few minor dents, bottom is solid- made of galvanized metal. Any ideas on what exactly this is? Was wondering if there would be a good collectors interest in an item like this and if so any idea of a value? Thanks a bunch!
