This is George’s chamber pot:

It’s not complete but you get the idea.

George must be very proud of his chamber pot in that he took the time to inlay or have inlayed his name on the lid. George feels better knowing that it is indeed his chamber pot. Can you imagine George’s horror waking up in the middle of the night and using somebody else’s chamber pot. That must be why he put his name on it.

Simply “GEORGE”.

Or, I could be wrong. It could be this chamber pot was made by the George Chamber Pot Company of McKeesport, PA. Expensive way to display your company’s logo.

It could be the model name or style. You know, the George chamber pot.

Or maybe it was a retirement present. What better gift for your retiring 19th century executive than a monogrammed chamber pot?

Maybe he just doesn’t like to share…
