Antique Toilet | Victorian Style Toilet



Antique Toilet

While most of us don't think in terms of toilets and artwork, many of the antique toilets from the past are made beautifully, and were considered a piece of artwork, not only a practical device to use.

As you can see from this Victorian style toilet made by T.R. & Company in 1902, this fills the bill exactly.

What is interesting to me is that beautiful toilet, and than the inclusion of what looks like a somewhat boring oak finished tank. While it looks nice, it seems to clash with the toilet style.

Either way, a nice piece of art, in spite of its purpose.
