This appears to be a pump mechanism which pumps oil from a bulk container in the cabinet below it to the tin oil pitcher under its spigot.  The red color is usually used on gasoline containers, however.

  2. Hi Lois,
    Someone made a boo boo with the paint color. Love the grittinessi (is that the right word) of this picture. Did you add something in the processing. Have a great day!

  6. Love the grain, as well as the simple palette of red and grey. The red of the pump really pops.

  7. Giving it a grainy look adds to the subject matter.

  8. My grand dad had that pump on a barrel of oil in his garage – thanks for the memory. I truly like the noise and grit this image portrays.
