PLEASE NOTE: FOR BUYERS OUTSIDE THE UK - WE ONLY ACCEPT PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL, PAID IN STERLING GBP
A very rare, 1899 patternBritish Army soldier'sMk.III BRASS OIL BOTTLE. This oil bottle would have been made for the Long Lee-Enfield, and would have also been later carried in the SMLE and the No.4 Enfields. There's only a very subtle difference between these and the 1906 pattern (the Mk.IV). This Mk.III has a slightly concurved base (hardly noticeable). We have tried to illustrate the difference in the second photo below, comparing it to a 1906 ptn MK.IV on the right but as you can see, it's a very slight difference.NB: The Mk.IV oiler is not included in sale, and is purely shown as a comparison. In 1906 they introduced the Mk.IV oiler, which had a flat base, allowing it to stand up, if required. These earlier Mk.III's are a lot scarcer, and this is the firstone we'vefound ina longtime.It's completely unmarked, but isex-British Army, as it came from ex-British Army stores. A very rare oil bottle.
Issued and used. Good condition for age.
