  1. Hello i have two cans , Burrsthreo lubricating oil and the other is rifle and gun oil i see you have a photo of these cans , could you please email me so we can discuss what these may be worth in New Zealand Regards Craig Poland


    • Hi Craig. Thanks for your enquiry. Unfortunately I have no idea of the value of Burrsthreo oil cans in New Zealand. It used to be quite common in Australia. However the two cans and one bottle are the earlier types. You will notice that one can has bars around the lid to facilitate opening and the other hasn’t got these bars, this particular can came later. Both lids have a hook attached inside with a mop attached. The last can to be produced didn’t have these features and did not have gun and rifle oil on the label. The last can mentioned, which is not pictured is quite common here and might fetch $10.00 on E Bay on a good day. I can’t remember what I paid for my two examples, but while they are not very common they don’t bring a lot of dollars. I could take them to a swap meet and ask around $20.00 and possibly get close to that amount. The bottle I paid $25.00 for and the labelling is in poor condition.

      I like these oil cans because they represent our local Australian industry. I wasn’t aware they could be purchased in New Zealand. As far as I am aware the company is not in production anymore.

      Regards Ray Hambo
