There are 6 antiques on this post for sale. I would like to sell the whole package together, but I would consider any reasonable offer on any of them

'Chamber Pot' or Thunder Mug
Chamber pots were used in ancient Greece at least since the 6th century BC and were known under different names. The introduction of indoor flush toilets started to displace chamber pots in the 19th century, but they remained common until the mid-20th century. The alternative to using the chamber pot was a trip to the outhouse.
A chamber pot might be disguised in a sort of chair (a close stool). It might be stored in a cabinet with doors to hide it; this sort of nightstand was known as a commode, hence the latter word came to mean "toilet" as well. For homes without these items of furniture, the chamber pot was stored under the bed.
The modern commode toilet and bedpan, used by bedbound or disabled persons, are variants of the chamber pot.
The Chamber Pot depicted originated in Nova Scotia and probably was brought in from Europe during the early settlements in Canada.
As can be noted from the photo, it is in great condition. Stamp on bottom says Royal Ironstone Ware

Antique Glassware
This glassware came from a former sea captain's property in southern Nova Scotia. From all accounts this property was settled in the early 1800s. It was common practice to discard glassware along the stone walls of the property lines. Please note: The duck carving above the display case is not for sale.
