Small copper 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. The Haws watering can was patented in the 1880s. Its design moved the handle from the top to the rear of the can, making the watering can easier to use.
