This is an ancient and beautiful watering can that has seen most of life since the late 1800's in a 'serre' or conservatory in the Sarthe.

It is dented, repaired both old and new, has bruises, scrapes, indentations, scratches, gouges, signs of use, verdigris (copper sulphate residue) on the inside, soldered joints and old dents.

There is a hole in the spout that has an old solder repair that has failed.

The true simple beauty of this old chap will take your breath away, it sits slightly crumpled but proud - a testament to the value of old things that tell a story or give a history just by being here.

This was made by a man in his workshop around 100 years ago or so using methods that are rarely used today to make an object that stood the test of time and is still as useful as the day it was made.

It is a substantial fellow that measures 21.5cm or 8 1/2 inches across and is 26.5 cm high or 10 1/2 inches.
From the spout to the handle it is 38cm which is 15 inches

The bulb fittings are compatable with 240V electrical supply which covers most of the world.
If you live in a country that has 110V electrical supply all you need to do to convert the lights is ask an electrician to replace the bulb holders when he is fitting the lights. All the wiring is suitable for world wide use. It's that simple!
