A rare and colorful early 19th century French pot d'aisance en terre vernisse or glazed terracotta chamber pot hand made in the South of France, circa early 1800s. Having a wide rim, tapered base and "D" handles, this antique French utilitarian pot, featuring a pale yellow glaze with splashes of green, served an important but humble purpose in the days before indoor plumbing.
