We have an oil can, antique item. The finish is completely covered in surface rust. It measures about 6 1/2" from the top of the spout to the bottom of the can with the can measuring about 6 1/4" from the cap to the bottom of the can. The cap is about 1 3/4" across with the base being about 5 3/4". The cap is rusted in place and there is something "rattling" inside, maybe old dried up oil?. This would be a great shelf piece.
