Vintage Plastic Watering Can For Retro Collectors

1950s Vintage Plastic Tomato Red Watering Can: Sweet Memories

Plastics were everywhere in the 1950s, from toys to garden accessories. Typical Atomic era colors were tomato red, green, sunny yellows and strong blues. Now that the warmer weather has finally arrived in the Northeast, I thought I would share with you this adorable plastic 1950's watering can. Be sure when you buy old plastics that you look for fading, cracks and chips. This watering can, spotted on Retro Revival (Etsy.com) was described as mint. Sorry it has been sold. Let me know if you spot another one!
