This paper label advertising tin is for Spring-Eez rust solvent, lubricant, and squeak cure. It was manufactured by Halsted Specialties Company out of San Francisco and comes to us from the 1920s.
As legend would have it, Griffin Halsted was working for Standard Oil Company in his New Jersey lab in late 1916 when one of his experiments with mineral oils exploded. When assessing the damage done, he noticed a liquid climbing up a piece of metal, attracted to the rust at the top while leaving no rust at the bottom. After 18 months of work, Halsted replicated the experiment and Spring-Eez was born.
This tin is 2.5" in diameter and 5" high.
