copper oiling can

copper oiling can

Description:

A small copper coloured metal oiling can with a handle and a thumb press part that was used by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. On the thumb press part of the handle reads "Golden Rod" and on top of the handle has "Dutton-Lainson Company - Hastings, Nebr., U.S.A." written on it, thus inscribing the company name. The company Dutton-Lainson was first found in 1886 by William M. Dutton and two of his friends when they began manufacturing small harnesses and collars for horses. At that time, it was widely known as one of the largest horse collar distributing companies of the nation before moving onto other distributions, such as printing and retailing. In today's standards, Dutton-Lainson is still well known for being one of the highest manufacturing businesses in that particular state, specifically for marine, automotive, industrial, and agricultural products. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.

Originally called the Steel Roof Truss Company, it also had a couple of other names changed in the process, such as Barks and Barstow Manufacturing Company in 1912 and Lincoln Steel and Forge Company in 1916 until it finally settled with the current brand name, Lincoln Industrial Corporation. The company has been bought and sold several times after 1953, and their products still remain under the Lincoln brand in present times, aside from other parental companies willing to purchase Lincoln Industrial Corporation in recent years.
