Caption

Two blue and white ceramic transfer printed bordaloues and a male urinal (centre), dating from around 1850, England. The bordaloue is a type of chamber pot which was specially designed for women; its oval in shape with a lip at one end and a handle at the other facilitated its use for travel, allowing women to relieve themselves without having to disturb their fashionable extensive skirts. Male urinals are still used today for those who have mobility problems, though modern designs tend to be plastic or disposable, papier mache.
