Also on the woodworking forum.

But, fair enough, I think the guy is casting his net wide, in the hope of

getting some info.

What was the Question? I can only see a request regarding the photos.

I think the question was meant to be something along the lines of :

“… does anyone know what, if anything, is special about it ?”

Try searching Graces Guide.

Might be untraceable; oil cans and similar were made by many companies, large and small, and it was common for them to be Brand-named on request. 'Abbey' might be the name of a long gone Ironmonger rather than a make.

Oh well … The Earth has done one full turn, and both threads are still on page_1

Presumably not that important after all.

Yes, Jason … that is pertinent to my point:

“both threads are still on page_1” of the forum
