EAGLE RAINBOW PUMP OILER & VERY OLD OIL CAN Dated 1867
- Source: eBay
Two older, Vintage and Antique Oil Cans with some interesting stamped or labeled details for one combined auction and shipping price, as follows:Vintage Motor Oil Can labeled "RAINBOW PUMP OILER Made in U.S.A. EAGLE MANUFACTURING COMPANY" on label attached to side of oil can -and- "EAGLE" stamped on the handle as seen in photos above. The oil can measures approximately 10 1/4" tall with a 3" diameter base with a bend in the neck of the pump oiler and two dents in the top of the base. It appears to be in good working condition, free of rust with the pump moving freely. This is a very nice old oiler with side label and stamped handle. Extra old tin soldered Oil Can with a slightly bent spout that came out of the drawer of a very old Singer Sewing Machine with a date stamped on the base of the oil can as follows: "PAT FEB Y. 26. 1867" This oil can has some rust on it and the spout does not unscrew. The oil can measures only approximately 3 1/4" tall with a 2 1/8" outside diameter base. I believe this to be very scarce in this size, and particularly with the old patent date stamped on the base of this miniature oil can!
