The Most Beautiful Watering Can Ever?

I didn’t know it was possible to fall in love with a watering can until I saw the x3 from Kontextur–and I am smitten. Kontextur, the design house best known for its cleverly designed bathroom accessories, has branched out, collaborating with fellow New Yorker, the designer Paul Loebach. The designer drew inspiration from Eastern European motorbikes for his simple watering can design.  Made from industrial steel, the x3 Watering Can is available for $67 from Kontextur.
