Flog It Blog It, Down Right Potty!
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.
