Vintage Watering Can

R350.00

I suspect that today’s watering can has a fair bit of age of it, and over the years has been adapted somewhat. For starters, I’m pretty sure that the watering can was originally unpainted, or at least if it was green, it’s had many, many paint jobs since it’s original factory-applied paintwork! It’s also quite obvious that the rose isn’t original. I bought it from a retired engineer who admitted that at some point he had replaced the rose. But I have to say, he did a brilliant job – the rose is nice and tight, pours beautifully and the addition of the brass turns what’s otherwise quite a basic piece of gardening equipment into something quite special!

P.S. We’ve given the watering can an oil, which which has made the green come up a bit brighter, and we’ve polished the brass rose. To keep it looking tip-top you’d need to give it a clean from time to time, or of course you could let nature take its course, in which case the brass and the paintwork would obviously dull a bit

Dimensions: 40cm tall (incl. handle) x 20cm in diameter; 53cm long (from handle to tip of spout)

Unfortunately this item is too large for one of our courier packets, so will need to be boxed. To save on shipping costs, we’re happy to combine other items at no additional courier fee
