old oil can spouts - Sat Nov 12 2005 11:48 PM

I found an old oil can spout at a local garage sale and would appreciate if someone could give me some idea how old it might be. It's 6 inches long in total, with a metal spike/spout on the one end that is 1 1/2 inches long by itself. The spout end is round and about 3/4 inches in diamater. It has a rubber seal and a metal coil at the top of the spike. There are no markings or etchings of any kind anywhere on the item. The last time I've ever seen a spout like this was way back in the 50's but it could be older then that. thanks for any help or ideas you might have.
