Howdy all! First post so go easy lol wanted to share this old oil dispenser I picked up yesterday! Planning on cleaning it up and giving it to an old friend who just retired. He worked his whole life in the gas and oil industry. Any information on this particular unit? Value? This is the first gas and oil related item I have owned.

The ones I've found in the PNW are usually in the $50 - $100 range...... unless they have a glass cylinder then it goes up to over $100.
Here are some examples on CL..... not mine.

I agree on the 50-100 range. They are a mess to clean. Especially the inside if you are trying to preserve the original decal. If it were mine, I would clean it up as best you can and try to preserve the vintage look with that old decal. They are only original once....

Thanks guys! I paid $40 so I guess it’s on par or at least the lower end of the value. I plan to clean it up and keep the vintage look. I dig the way it looks now. Again thanks for your impute
