That was the first thing I thought when I saw it. And maybe it is. But I studied the heck out of the photo's and compared it to the one I have. And i'm just not thinking so. If you look at the edges closely, there is no thickness at all to the color area. It looks like paint or ink. It would seem to me that if a wrap, you would see some thickness to the vinyl material. No???
I guess unless holding in your hand just hard to say.
Sure does seem almost to good to be true.

I think it would be very difficult to fake this can with a wrap with the broken panel artwork this can has. I think it would be pretty evident if it had multiple vinyl edges. Most wrapped quarts are one piece and have a beginning and an end at the seam. This particular oiler would require 2 separate panels, which I think would be visible in the close ups if there were multiple edges of vinyl. Just my thoughts....
