It is a rare occasion that I buy an old can, and I've never bought an oil can, but I loved the graphics on this Oilzum can so much I couldn' t resist. Plus, it has a tight-fitting, removable lid and is clean inside so would be perfect for holding crayons or paint brushes or whatever. I've learned that Oilzum cans are in fact quite collectible--and no wonder; Oilzum, made in Worchester, MA, was the "choice of champions"!
Surface scratches, minor dings, stains and losses as pictured, but overall good condition, dating to the 1940s I believe. The lid fits tight but is easily removed, and the interior shows light rust but is clean and in good shape. One pound can - 4 1/2" t x 3 3/8" in diameter.
