Lady Washington's Watering Can Ornament
The Washingtons had a keen interest in gardening and delighted in nurturing rare and exotic plants which were sent to them from all over the world. The gardeners at Mount Vernon were held in high regard and were afforded the best tools and resources such as French copper "watering pots". This Watering Can Ornament is a miniature reproduction of a hammered copper watering can from our museum collection. Perfect for the garden lover on your list.
The ornament is 2 ¼” tall, 2 ½” wide, and 1" in diameter at the base, with red ribbon for hanging.
