Brass & Cane Watering Can

Carl Auböck (1900-1957) was a Bauhaus trained designer celebrated for his approach to modern industrial design. His pieces form the core of the current Auböck collection, which is still produced by the family today in the original Viennese werkstätte. Designed in 1948, this indoor watering can is handmade from polished and patinated brass, with cane wrapped around its handle. This watering can has an organic, sleek shape evoking modernist design.
