Made by DAVIES BROS & CO LTD, WOLVERHAMPTON (and bearing an oval brass makers label with this information and the founding date 1838). English, late 19th/early 20th century. The firm was one of the first hot dip galvanising companies in the world.
In very good condition with no oil. Solid. The base is still strong and thick but isn't completely flat. It has been cleaned, polished and clear waxed outside. The inside has been cleaned of loose rust.
