Anyone remember this?

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

Looks much better now!

Excellent work:thumb I think you need one of those old wizard hat fire extinguishers to go with it.

Your workshop looks like something from the industrial revolution, love all the little draws no doubt filled with bolts and bits for every occassion.

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

No, only the brass plate. These sem to have been the standard style of can for mine lamp oils. We have seen a few since I found this one.
