Items discovered in a cabinet on the back porch. The Eagle oilcan looks to be in good condition. Is there a specific use for a can with that long and narrow a spout? Unfortunately, the doorbell had been up against a bag of plant food that leaked and corroded the copper. If I were to sell these items, what would be a fair market value? Thanks.
Here is a very similar oiler.
I think this example might give you some insight into what you have found.
If that was a reference to me, I do see the ruler, that I obviously overlooked, but I still do not see wires in this one, and the pull string appears to be leather....to my eyes.
Maybe you can show us more definitive examples of what you are explaining?
Oops, screwed up again! :(
This oil can is very much like mine:
Yep, I like the one you found better. There you go!
