The Gewgaw, Chinese Clothes Sprinkler

I remember when my mom used a clothes sprinkler to do her ironing - hers was a plastic bottle with a corked nozzle. You'd shake the water out on the shirt and iron away. No steam iron in those days. My job was to iron all my dad's handkerchiefs. I think the job would have been more pleasant with this little ceramic sprinkler, although I don't see my chinese mom buying one of these.

Pop out the rubber stopper on his head, fill 'er up, and voila - if you look closely, you can see the words 'sprinkle plenty' debossed on his pants.

What, not 'splinkle prenty'? Anyway, he's far too cute to get too upset about.
