Absolutely adorable, this copper watering can is quite small, it is wonderfully crafted, a fine quality watering can meant to water small plants. such as african violets. This decorative miniature watering can has acquired a wonderful patina over time. A treasure for your collection of gardening tools and watering cans.
In the early 1900's, small blooming plants were highly prized and collected by many an avid gardener in his or her home and greenhouse. Displayed with great pride, entered in competitions and doted over. A little can like this would be filled with water, let "stand" a few days, then used carefully to water plants, taking care not to allow any water to drip on the leaves, to avoid damaging them. Display this with your antique gardening books, or use for your plants.
