Nice little period gee-gaw to add to the growing collection. Courtesy of Pukka Bundook. Valve-Spout is an old & high quality brand so I'm thrilled plus it goes with the AGP aperture sight!



It reminds me of the beginning of Disney's "Aladdin" where the Arab merchant is selling "Dead Sea Tupperware":
"Look" (flips lid, blows raspberry)
"Still fresh! It still burps!"

V pleased it arrived safe, Sham.
 
I'd looked up the business history when I first found these oilers, all V interesting.  Maybe this lot were back-roomed after the name change to P-H.  (the bloke had  a box full of them)
 
It's snail mail both ways, and will let you know when the shekels arrive.  :-)
 
If anyone else wants  one, I can keep my eyes peeled for the bloke at local gunshows.
