I think they are pretty cute! They would certainly be a hit today - at least as a conversation piece! More so than the spittoon I have sitting on the floor next to our bar. wink

Oh I'd love to have one. Just think what kind of chat the Napoleon one could stir up.

We visited a pub outside London that had dozens of decorative chamberpots on display. I was amazed at how beautiful several were - hand painted flower designs, etc. I should look back in my travel journal for the name of the pub.

Cathy - Napoleon or Henry the Vlll! Henry the Vlll would deserve to have his face at the bottom of a chamber pot! IMHO! wink

Alice, the link was spotted over at the Two Nerdy History Girls blog. You never know what you'll come across there.
