You are looking at an original UNITED ARTISTS TRANSAMERCA watering can from the early '70's. The design is patterned after the "tire track" logo that opened UNITED ARTISTS films from 1968 to 1980. This watering can is EXTREMELY RARE because I think that it was once owned by Jack Valenti. Or maybe it was Johnnie Grant. I always get the two confused. Bidding starts at $3.45 or you can but it now for $6,000. No checks or food stamps. And PayPal is no pal of mine. I'll email the winning bidder a number in TJ where to wire the cash. Good luck!

He also did the artwork for Arthur Miller's book and movie poster of "The Misfits" in 1961:
