Cylinder lubrication ?

The gentleman I bought my engine from has given me an oiler for it.
It’s identical to the one in the fuzzy photo attached, which BTW is also on a Mumford auxiliary engine very similar to mine.
What are these oilers called and are they any good?
Many thanks as always
Ian

Hi Bart.
Thanks.
That certainly looks like her.
BTW my project is progressing steadily, hull nearing completion and will shortly be inverting once again to start on the fitting out.
On schedule for launching summer 2020
