Default Oiler Unknown

Word of mouth told me to go see an elderly gentlemen that lived in the middle of nowhere. He said his grandfather has a box of old hit and miss engine oilers that he decided to sell..they were 14 in all plus a large brass "Oil Well Supply" s team gauge...We arrived at a price and when I got home and took a closer look finally had enough light to see and I think I found 3 rather rare engine oiler, but the photos of one of them me totally lost. Hopefully some of you readers can tell me about it. The gasgets appear good and everything works as it should. I'm not selling it at this time but just tying to get information such as when made, by whom, and possibly engine it was used onit. Note that it's all heavy glass going into the mounting brass nut. The metal appears to be a bronze and a brass and the top never took a cover over the hole where oil would have been added. Thanks for all input guys. A small impressed "O" is on the top plate but difficult to see.

I believe it is a Phillips and may have been used on National Transit Klein engines.
