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.
