    A 1/4 Gallon oil can also known as a quart. It seems that cans like these were used in the 1920s and 1930s and possibly before that.
    On the side is stamped...

    1/4Gal.Liquid
    U.S.Standard
    N.Y.C.Apprd.D.2
    Approved MINN. 7-A

    A bit less common than the typical funnel type and probably made less of a mess.

      Now that's a great oil can and a clever design. Never seen one like this before.
