This is a vintage French enamel slipper style bed pan in white with blue pattern and rim. This vintage antique item was originally a bed pan; these are now ideal to be repurposed as a garden planters or as flower displays as they have a flat back which sits well against a wall. This is quite an unusual one of these which has the French makers stamp on the back and the model stamp on the side. These are usually plain white with no detail. The model is 'Le Bassian', it reads 'Bassin siege anatomique, doux comme un couss' which translates as 'anatomical basin seat, soft as a cushion'. These are widely collected for use in gardens, they would add a French vintage charm to any outdoor space. This enamel pot could also be used as a storage pot in a kitchen or bathroom. This is an old piece probably dating from between 1920s-1930s so it will show signs of age and wear, as you would expect and all adding to its charm. All the items I sell are bought from French brocante fairs and flea markets so are used or vintage. They will show signs of a previous life, this is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal. See our vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds for your home and garden including more of these planters/pots as well as some vintage enamel irrigators which are also great as planters, all sourced from markets across France.
