Scott, I have three or four of these small tanks. You're missing a bowl shaped strainer that drops in the large hole. I'll try to find the time to dig mine out and take some photo's. I believe, they held solvent and were for washing hands.

Kerosene Pump. For filling the one gallon transfer bottles to fill your lamps and stoves - before electricity.

You can tell by the large opening for the transfer unit to sit on.
