A 19th century Sunderland lustre decorated pottery chamber pot.

The pot has a pair of strap handles to the outside and a pottery frog inside.

This amusing chamber pot has beside the frog a transfer print of a man holding his hands up and printed around him is "Use me well, keep me clean, I will not tell, what I have seen".

The outside of the pot has two more poems, one on each side, the first one reads:

"A Present . . .
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 of it use,
And when you init want to P-ss,
Remember them who sent you this".

Poem 2 reads: "To The Wife . . .
Dear lovely wife pray rise and P-ss,
Take you that handle and I this,
This present which to you is sent,
To make some mirth it seems is meant,
So let it be as they have said,
We'll laugh & P-ss & then to bed".

The chamber pot is in very good original condition. (Circa 1830)
