Very Rare Original Antique Victorian Child's Miniature Tin Watering Can. Toy Miniature or For Use/Play With Doll.DESCRIPTION: Rare original ANTIQUE VICTORIAN MINIATURE TIN WATERING CAN. Made of thin tin, painted "garden green". Has nice arched handle, domed top, and has nice angled spout with sprinkle head. Was also well taken care of by the original owner as well as by succeeding families and owners over the years.
Could have been part of a collection of miniature "child-size" items and miniatures not doll house size, but miniatures like a tea set, like would be in a play house, etc. Like today when kids wanted a "child-size" version of parents' household items. Measures about 2 1/2" diameter x 3" high (cylinder itself), x 4 1/2" high overall, x 4 1/2" wide.
You won't find many items like this, this early, nor many in this nice condition!!! Great for a collection or a HOME OR SHOP DISPLAY. Condition is pretty nice, with only minor wear to the paint and a slightly loose handle where it joins the body which doesn't detract from its appearance. Can be easily resoldered if desired.
May have been used by an adult for household plants, etc. VERY RARE ITEM AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE LIKE IT!!!
