Toilet Humour

A beautiful bog? A lovely lav? A cracking can? A luscious loo? A jolly john? (I’m starting to struggle a bit here!)

A stylish design fit for any household

These are toilets with a bit of style. Using a technique called transfer printing it became far easier for manufacturers to put designs on ceramics during the 18th century. Before this technique was devised paint could only be applied by hand, but with transfer printing, manufacturers could make their loo’s as decorative as they wanted for a fraction of the price. Providing customers with a fancy can should they like a bit of style when they are sat on the throne.

Is it too nice to use though?
