#P4-50 is an authentic Brass Tulsa Oil Thief, by the W.L. Walker Company. W.L. Walker Co., Inc. was established in 1926 by William Lee Walker, who was the co-inventor of the Tulsa Oil Thief™. (more information on the W.L. Walker company found here)
The Oil Thief is a simple device that is utilized to collect accurate crude oil samples. The height of this thief is 21″. The length is 5.5″ and the width is 4″. The weight is 8.5 pounds.
Unfortunately, the glass tube inside of thief has been damaged and isn’t large enough to encompass the entire thief. You may be able to find a replacement tube – we are keeping our eyes out for one as well. This item has a deep patina that was developed over years of use at sea.
