The Wishing Well Watering Can

Continuing my series on the Pretty Penny Wishing Well, I wanted to highlight one particular hard-to-find piece: the watering can

In particular I wanted to address the listing on ThisOldToy.com (TOT) where it states that the watering can is a "purple garden watering [pitcher] with a handle and a round white pour spout". As you can see in the above picture, it is indeed a purple watering pitcher with a handle and a round pour spout, but the spout isn't white.

I think the misunderstanding comes from the pictures on the Wishing Well box. In the picture on the box front, it does appear at first glance that the watering can has a white spout:

However, if you look closely, you realize that the white color is merely a result of the light coming from the left of the picture which then reflects off of the flat spout.

In case you still are unconvinced, check out the picture on the back of the box:

Here you can see that the watering can does indeed have a purple spout.

Well, that's all for now, but stay tuned, because I have a few other Wishing Well posts yet to write, plus lots more on other Precious Places sets!
