    A couple of old Oil cans that were my Dads (R.I.P) and I do not see any marks on them. They are Special as I always think of my Dad and his tools when I see these....and growing up....I was a Tom-boy. Always had to be by my Dad's side helping him on the farm working on Equipment. I am thinking the late 1960's era ??

    Any ideas of the Makers / Age ?

    Thanks for the memories Dad -- I cherish them!!

    Thanks for looking !!

      Love the oil cans, have a few myself.
      Hard to tell the size but they look like the little ones that came with sewing machines. Those are my favorites.

      Same for me daddy's RIP..I have 7 different oil cans most likely 1 of them go back to 1930s keepers. .I will have to look and see if mine have any markings I'll get back but more then likely they were from standard oil company

      lol@RICK55 -- You got that Right.

      I do not focus on a couple things. I have lots of areas of collecting. Yes very wide range from Glass, to Clocks, Advertising Signs, Pottery......you name it, I think I have it.....LOL.

      Not one of these *New* so called collectors....LOL. Been collecting about 45+ year - as I still have a little table I bought from my first auction sale. My parents helped me with the bidding, and the limit.....which was $ 10. It was the neighbour's farm auction and I wanted one piece to remember them by.
