these pots were used in wooden "potty chairs" that were movable. They are very cute but other than a planter, I can think of any way to use them, except for their own sweet selves!
You can always make a real or faux flower arrangement in them for a centerpiece. Set potted plants in them.
I would use them as planters. Wouldn't do anything else. Chamber pots are great collectibles. Value about $25 to $50. With makers marks the could be worth much more.
If not interested in selling them if valuab, I would make a water feature for your garden or porch. Using the smaller one on top to "over pour" into the bottom one. You can find kits & instructions online.
Use them to hold a spare roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
Wow, this post really brought back memories!! When vacationing with our parents in the late 1950s when gasoline stations were scarce and traveling with only little girls and no sons, this type potty was essential for emergency stops. It served its purpose well though. I agree with Naomi about making a flower arrangement in them for your bathroom. As Bob Hope would say, “Thanks for the memories.”
I love Kathy's idea of using to hold extra toilet paper in bathroom.
They would make great planters!
Yes planters but nothing else these were used for a commode of type.
