New to the site, but I have an interesting item that I'm not sure what it's worth. I contacted an individual from AutomobiliaUsa.com who informed me of the following:
Hi Gary -
Atlantic started back in 1866, a few years later Standard took it over. It became a refining company after the Standard break-up in 1911. Atlantic began marketing on it's own in 1915. I believe your unit is a 1816 because of it's design. It could be a few years later, but in the 1920's the design changed.
It looks to me that it is "pretty much" all there. It is missing a screen filter that had mesh wire in it at the large opening in the barrel. This filter is removable and that is probably why it is missing. Gilbert & Barker made several different oil dispensers through the years, but not many like this.
Hope this helps,
Can anyone provide any particular information about this item? What it's worth? How rare it is? Thanks!
