Oil Can, Octaga ; Tecalemit; 1920-1930; WY.0000.935

Name/Title

Oil Can, Octaga

About this object

This is a small oil can made for oiling a bicycle. The slim spout made it easy to reach small parts, and the wing nut closure meant that the oil could be popped into a saddle bag with no risk of leaking.

We believe that this was made by a company called 'Tecalemit' but not sure about the location of this company.
