Flog It Blog It, Down Right Potty!

Blog from the bog. Molly The Wallys' toilet humour.

The Worlds' most expensive potty goes to auction. 

This blog is dedicated to Goose whose mum is a pasta opps sorry pastor.

You would have to spend more than a pretty penny to buy the world’s most expensive chamber pot. Made on 1724 this Meissen example is valued at a unbelievable £60,000. Pooh pooh I hear you say it can’t be true. Yep it is and you can splash out and buy it if you are feeling a wee flush! It looks like granny’s gravy boat if you ask me? Yikes roasts dinners will never taste the same again. This no bog standard bourdalou and it comes up for auction at the end of the year here in London. The bourdalou was named in the 18th century after the priest Louis Bourdalou, who preached at the court of French King Louis IV. His sermons were so fascinating that ladies of the court would use their pots rather than leave to relieve themselves. So that’s quite a hullaballoo about going to the loo folks. We think you’d have to be pretty potty to want buy it.

  10. Hi Molly,

    Holy Pee Wees...I've peed myself thinking about it, I thought it was an antique water bowl not a pee pot! Mum got a gravy boat like that at home, may go for a sniff later to see whats its worth bury it along with my other finds....this could me that once I've flogged it, mum and dad will have to sign a Prenup!I'm not just for Christams.

  13. I think my MOM needs one of those after reading this. Bawhahhahha. That Priest Dude must have been some preacher. MOM says she would rather people head of to the "head" during her message than pop a squat in the sanctuary.
    Blessings,

  20. Do they do them in different sizes we wonder? A gravy boat wouldn't be much use if you were a Mastiff, would it?

  24. Fancy chamber pot but we like the back yard. And Goose's mom is our pastor! We get to go to church the 3rd Sunday of every month and we get to bark "AMEN" if we want to and it's okay with her.

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  25. Hi Y'all,

    Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a visit. I'm so glad y'all could make it!

    Hope y'all are havin' a wonderful week. I'm still BOL!!!! It does kind of look like my Human's gravy boats...though I'm sure they wouldn't fetch that kind of poundage. ;)

    Y'all come back now,

  26. I'm picturing a row of ladies all regally seated on a pot. Must have made for some interesting accompaniment to the sermon!

  27. This confirms Wrigs's suspicions that humans are just plain goofy. You could buy a LOT of dog treat-making supplies for £60,000!
