    Looks like a reservoir from an old kerosene heater similar to the shown inside this one:

    When I lived in Florida we called them smudge pots. They were used to keep the citrus fruit from freezing.

    Same deal in California. Except this one is decorated, and the smuge pots were plain. I'm thinking kerosene heater for in the house.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Smudge pots don't have pumps, and they don't have wicks either. I'm sure you have part of a kerosene heater, which would have an adjustable wick, especially so it wouldn't smoke up the house. Smudge pots put out lots of smoke, they were stinky damn things. Now days they use propellers to stir up the air, and will also irrigate, coating everything with ice, which keeps it right at 32 degrees and saves it from freezing. Here's a picture of smudging an orange grove.
