House plant watering can

Small plastic watering can made by Embee Products and designed for watering house plants. Embee Products produced a variety of house hold items in sleek plastic designs. Traditionally watering cans were made of clay and then metals such as steel or copper. The invention of plastic in the 20th century has lead to a great variety of designs, including this can, which are lighter than their metal counterparts.
