    Are these the cans that were used for storing oil, kerosene and such so that you had a safe pouring spout?

      Given the style of this one, perhaps. Especially if it once had a lid but I think of it as a watering can and use it for that purpose. When I found it in a second hand store years ago, it didn’t have any oily residue or weirdness on the inside.

    How ironic. Just found an old oil can today in a home I am helping to clear out. Was told “Take it I have no idea what it is or what it is used for.” Explained and she told me to take it anyway. Elderly woman/friend is moving form a 4 bedroom family home to a one bedroom assisted living apartment. Hoarding has been an issue and it is going to be a long time of ‘doing’ and clearing.
