Many of us still recognize it, some of us don’t ever want to be reminded of it, the odd one is still in use and anyone below a certain age wouldn’t even know what it is…. The tradition of a lidded chamber pot, preserved for posterity but without the newspaper for shredding and the deep, plunging well, which have been replaced by modern-day comfort and technology. For the men, the seat can be lifted; for the cleaning lady, the front panel can be placed to one side. When closed, the whole forms a proper storage chest with room to store all your products and toilet rolls, the air freshener and Dad’s comics. When fully opened, voilà – it’s your standard lavatory pan. Material: Solid wood, varnished or plain.
