Stunningly Decorative US Vintage Motor Oil Cans, Gas and Grease Cans by TNT Petronliana

Reddit rarely fails to deliver when you least expect it, and in this case it’s in the form of these stunning US vintage Motor Oil Cans, Gas Cans and Grease Cans.

TNT Petroliana is a prize worthy Instagram account that Specializes in Motor Oil & Gas Antiques, that are collected then sold on Ebay.

I’ve picked out a couple of big images of some of my favourites along with various other types of fossil fuel products, covering: motor cup grease, crank shaft lubricants, motor and aeroplane oils.

The illustrative work on many of these is just something to behold, and love that many kinds of animals represent some of these brands, from: Huskies, Parrots, Tigers, Seals, Elephants to name just a few.

It’s not just the illustrative work here that is so inspiring, many of these brand names are just brilliant; nearly all of these ooze unique and individual personalities, then you’ve also got some equally creative tag-lines.

An example:

Hercules Axle Grease ‘Is the Best’ – Degapod Lubricants – Fisher, Thornson & Co.

 

I mean, everything about nearly every one of these just delights me.

If you’re in the market for antique oil cans, or just love anything to do with motor cars (vintage racing logo decals) and such, then you can also visit the ‘official’ ebay account of TNT Petronliana

There are way more examples over on the Instagram account, so go and check it out…
