This old oil can once contained Singer All Purpose Oil. The yellow, orange and white tin is quite a diversion from the typically seen green and red tins. The front of the tin has silhouettes of assorted items like a drill, an electric fan, a sewing machine and a bicycle reinforcing the “all purpose” indication but the side of the tin still has the statement; A Specially Prepared Lubricant for Household Sewing Machines. The small Singer logo trademark is also on that side panel. The oil was manufactured by The Singer Company of New York. The original price was 39c. The tin has a plastic spout which is threaded for a cap but the cap is missing.
This empty tin measures about 2 ¼” wide, 1 1/8” deep and about 3 7/8” high excluding the spout. It is in nice condition with minimal scuff and scratch wear and a small dent. As previously stated the plastic cap is missing from the spout.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
