Small Containers

This site is not affiliated with, sponsored or approved by Texaco.

Through the years, Texaco has marketed a variety of products in containers 6 ounces and smaller.  Most common are the home lubricant cans, but there are many others.  Here are several examples.   If you have a container not listed, or a better example of one that is already shown, please let us know.  If you'd be willing to share a picture with others, we would be happy to post it on this page, with your credit of course. mailto:ed@texacollector.com


Here's a dandy container someone recently bought on ebaylogo.gif (1044 bytes)
The only problem is that the bottle was determined to be a fake! 
The buyer told me the seller accepted it back and provided a full refund, but this may not always be the case. 
Every day there are more reproductions for sale, and some, like this one aren't marked. 
Buyer Beware!!
