MOORES PATENT Oil Can
A tidy No.250 MOORE'S PATENT oil can.
Marked 'MOORE'S PATENT' around the brass cap.
The MOORE & WRIGHT 1935 catalogue says:
"This is the only satisfactory Leak-proof Oilcan on the Market. It is quite automatic, and does not need pressing on any object to get the oil out. The body of the can is made from good sound tin, and the bottoms are of brass"
Good sprung action to the brass base.
A few minor surface knocks and scratches.
23/8 inch base diameter, 33/4 inches high including spout.
* Please note this can is untested.
