This amusing and highly sought after pink Sunderland lustre chamber pot which dates from the early 1800's has a surprise hidden inside the bowl in the form of an open mouthed, shiny, glazed brown frog. The inside is also decorated with a printed man with the quote "Keep me Clean and use me Well, And what I see I will not tell."
This unusual and rare chamber pot has twin handles and bears an amusing marriage quote to both sides which read as follows...
This pot is a Present sent.
Some mirth to make is only meant,
We hope the same you'll not refuse,
But keep it safe and oft it use.
When in it you want to P'ss,
Remember them who sent you this.
Dear lovely wife pray rise and P'ss
Take you that handle & I'll take this,
Let's use the Present which was sent
To make some mirth is only meant
So let it be as they have said
We'll laugh and P'ss and then to Bed.
