Description

Copper indoor watering can. Haws, founded in Clapton, Hackney in 1886, is believed to be the oldest watering can company in the world. The company, now based in Smethwick in the West Midlands is still manufacturing in the UK today. This kind of watering can may well have been in use in Loddiges nursery gardens in Hackney.

This watering can was sold at Tom Budding's shop J Glinert at 71 Wilton Way, Hackney. Jack Glinert was the the original owner of the shop and the name was taken on by Tom Budding.
