Vintage enamel enema cans

Vintage enamel enema cans

I just couldn’t bring myself to call these vintage enamel cans by their proper name – enema cans! But please don’t be put off, for starters I’m fairly confident that they haven’t been used in many, many years, plus we’ve given them a really good scrub! And while their original purpose may not be that appetising I think that they’d make great planters – they have built-in hooks so can easily be hung on a garden wall, and the little ‘spouts’ mean that there’d be good drainage for your plants. And how great would they look all hung together with some fleshy succulents planted in them!

Dimensions: Large enamel can – 22cm tall x 13cm in diameter; Small enamel cans – approx. 19cm tall x 10cm in diameter

Price: Large enamel can – R150; Small enamel cans- R120 each
