Description 🔉

A fascinating piece, and a real old fashioned kind of 'functional' antique. It was manufactured by John Meir, at the factory in Glasgow and was designed, specifically, for a lady to use, in order to urinate, whilst she was either seated at the Dinner Table or travelling in her carriage! It dates from about 1830. Whilst it has no cracks or chips, it has been extremely well restored - the restoration of a hair line crack to one side of the rounded end is only visible under ultra violet light.
