This is a nice Vintage 2 gallon Capitol Oil Can. The top has been removed and inside can is clean. Great for man cave trash can!! The folklore is that old thrifty Vermont farmers would clean and re-use the oil cans after they used the oil in the farm equipment. They would clean them and cut the tops off for maple syrup collecting on the trees! You can see the nail holes in the cans! This would also make sense because these old cans are hard to find in the south or west of the northeast states! I cannot find any back up literature on this but was told this from a old Vermont farmer!! 2 gallon - Measures 10 1/2 x 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 At Vermont Picker 802 we sell Antique, Vintage, and Unique finds!
