  • Origin:
A rare and important Edwardian mahogany commode and chamber pot created for the famed British Military Field Officer Horatio Herbert, First Earl of Kitchener. The chamber pot retains its blue and white porcelain bowl featuring an image of Kitchener's rival, Frederickk Sleigh, Lord Roberts of Kandahar, at the bottom. The box was originally equipped with a tank of water and a hand pump to flush the white porcelain bowl, which is adorned with cobalt blue flowers and topographical scenes. At the base of the bowl is a "trap door" with a photograph of Field Marshall Lord Roberts, a highly respected British military figure who was criticized by some for his decisions during the Boer War Campaigns of 1900. Lord Kitchener was regarded as the hero of the Boer campaign, after he took over leadership away from Lord Roberts due his inability to complete military objectives.

The seat bears the stamp "Broome Hall Inv 238" indicating that the commode was counted in the official inventory of Lord Kitchener's estate. 

Circa 1905
