Japanese 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 Japanese watering can measuring just 15 cm in length. It is made of tin pressed in to a fish shape with red, yellow and blue decoration.
