ANTIQUE 18/19th C FRENCH DOVETAILED COPPER SWING HANDLE WATERING CAN
Antique late 18th / early 19th century French hammered copper watering can. A rare and unusual design, hand crafted, with a hammered finish and completed using dovetail joints. The wrought iron swing handle is safely fitted through copper rings which are firmly fixed via a copper collar fixed with rivets. A copper sheet is rivetted to the front of the pail to stop any overflow of water when pouring. I believe these may have traditionally been used by the wine makers of France. It is well used and as such has the usual knocks and marks that you find on these items. Dimensions - 30cm H not incl. Handlex 28cm W x40D (at furthest points) / Weight 2.5kg. A fantastic collector's item which would also make a fine garden decoration and a great piece of social history. The items I sell are in a used antique or vintage condition.
