The L B Beerbower company of Newark, New Jersey was opened in the 1850s and was known for its manufacture of pharmacy items. This wonderful "semi-granite" porcelain pottery bed pan was likely made in the last quarter of the 19th century. While it can still be used as originally intended, we think it makes a great statement piece for your creativity: use it as a base for a fancy flower arrangement or pot, hang it on the wall in a bathroom (we'd put a fancy frame around it for a true art piece!), make a bird bath--many possibilities!

From drain to opposite end, it measures 16 3/4", 11 1/4" wide, and 5 3/4" high to top of drain.

Condition is very good. There is expected overall crazing and you'll notice a kiln flaw on the side curvature--this was done "in the making" as a result of heating and cooling. It's common to the process and does not got through. There is also a dime size circle on the inside bottom that is a similar manufacture kiln flaw.

The bed pan is marked on the reverse as pictured with the Beerbower mark.

This piece weighs 5 1/4 lbs before packing, and shipping will be via FedEx Ground or Home Delivery, insurance included.
