BOWRING'S MOTOR OIL Can - click to enlarge


Is this the ultimate collectors oil can?
Dating from 115 years ago right at the start of our motoring history. The Bowring oil company, along with Carless were responsible for early petrol and oil distribution. Bowring later operated under the Mex brand and were bought in 1921 by Shell. Superb pictorial can, still in great condition, and part of our heritage.
