Most people today have no ideas what life was like without indoor plumbing. The best life had to offer was a large porcelain pot usually stored under the bed. Not only was using it a bit awkward but it was somebody”s job to empty it out. Today, for whatever reasons, many of these chamber pots survive as they are attractive, useful (in a modern way), and even collectible.
Many chamber pots were just utilitarian and were made from white ironstone. Other were quite decorative and even made from Paris porcelain. Originally they all had lids (naturally) and handles but often these parts has gone missing over the years. LooLoo likes porcelain so you will usually find a pot or two on our website.
