HAWS Traditional Watering Can 'The Bearwood Brook Green' - One Gallon (4.5L)
Made from heavy gauge steel coated with galvanised zinc, the design of this 4.5 litre capacity can is instantly recognisable as a ‘Peter Rabbit’ style can, hence it’s name; the ‘Traditional Can’.
The 198-1 Haws Traditional is a fusion of designs, blending the style, balance and ergonomics of the Haws Original watering can with the quintessential aesthetics of a traditional Peter Rabbit style can. The spout is set at a steeper angle to that of the Original can, making it more compact. Larger ferrule and large rose keeps the flow rate high to get watering done fast and efficiently.

Haws: UK manufacturer Haws who have been making their world famous watering cans since 1886.
It’s all in the making
Expertly handcrafted and built to last, Haws metal watering cans take more than 200 steps to make. It’s traditional British engineering at its finest, and all happens in their workshop in Smethwick, West Midlands. Here’s how everything comes together:
First the guillotine and shear the flat shapes from sheets of toughened steel.
Spout, handles, base and breast: each individual part is carefully shaped using traditional presses.
The body is formed from a single sheet of steel, rolled and then firmly joined together.
Up the spout
Having first soldered the seam of the spout and the ferrule, it is then expertly formed into its elegant curve.
The breast piece is spun on a lathe and rolled onto the edge of the body, locking them tightly together.
Doing the jig
After assembling the spout, handle and cross-stay in a jig, each piece is hand soldered to the body.
Back to base
The base of the can is held in a lathe and spun onto the body, for a tight and secure fit. Almost ready…
The brass roses are assembled in a jig, soldered together and finally hand polished to a beautiful shimmer.
Just add colour
Dusted with electrostatically charged paint powder, the can is heated to 200 degrees in the oven, curing the paint.
