    It is an oil tin, manufactured by the makers of the 'davey' safety lamps.

    Looks much better now!

    is there any markings on the bottom of the can?? a price or a can makers name

    it looks a very identical design to the carrless cappel and leonard cans from circa 1899/1900 era, they were used as early petrol cans before the square 2 gallon can.

    sorry but im a bit of a canorak and have quite a large collection lol
