Being a new member, I've been impressed with the beauty of these old 1 quart oil cans. I'd be interested in seeing more images of can art, and your opinion of who had the most attractive cans out there?

I've posted pics of cans i found online, most of them came from ebay or other website like this one : http://www.petromobilia.ch/

I'll post other pictures of nice graphic cans ( I have a file with more than 2000 pictures of oil cans )

the oil cans I have are those but not for sale

The Avion, Cascade, and Strata have to be some of the most stunning examples of can art I've seen.

It appears, at least from this thread, that the most decorative early cans were done for the French market. It this consistent over all with what can collectors have?
