Vintage


It just crossed my mind...do they even make oil cans like this anymore?  I am going to have to look for one.  If I can remember.


These two shots overlap...couldn't make up my mind which I liked best so just posting both.


Also, I did not pay a bit of attention to the prices of these, but next time I am there, I will.

Linking to Tuesday's Treasures....

Now that's an interesting display. Where did you find those?

Rose said...

FG, they were at an antique shop in Arthur, Illinois

The lubricant can looks too much like Campbell's soup. But you are RIGHT! Phil doesn't think they make these oil cans anymore. Remember the Tin Man being squirted with one?

Amazing....this is a flea market? Antique store? I bet they're all over priced. lol

I think Bud has a couple of oil cans...old ones....somewhere.

My dad had one of these oil cans and my brother has it. Two houses ago, our neighbor had a collection of oil cans that he had collected over the years.

I like those oil cans in the first pictures. I think those are now replaced with plastic containers.

I haven't seen any oilcans like that for many years. Nice to see them again.

Nice collection.

Sandra said...

wish that collection was mine. I just saw a glass oil can on Mildreds blog. I love all this vintage stuff on shelves.

Hello, I like the collection of oil cans. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

A notable collection of pictures loaded with many things to see. l think oil cans must be obselete by now.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I remember my Dad having some of those old oil cans.

Oil cans make a great collection.
I don't think they make those kinds any more either, though I do remember them and I think we even have one or two in our garage now!
Great photos.

They are wonderful, Rose! I love vintage treasures like these.

Christine said...

These are so fine! I don't think the cans nowadays are as nicely designed !

Red Rose Alley said...

Wow, those are old oil cans. I love the vintage pictures that you often take, Rose. That red oil can with the "Chevron" is so cool. I'll show my son that picture. : )

It makes me smile to see collections like this. What a wonderful find.

Bill said...

It's all in plastic bottles now--- A nice find!

Lois said...

Wow! What great photos. It has been a long time since I've see oil cans like these. They are reminding me of the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz!
