Children’s Watering Can

Watering cans are ideal for using in the garden, at home and in the conservatory. The first metal watering cans appeared in the late 17th century after Lord Timothy George wrote the term watering can in his garden diary in 1692. This is a decorative children’s watering can from around 1930. The can is made of tin, a light metal suitable for children, and shows an illustration of four children playing in the garden.
