1895 John Douglas “Sluice” Raised Ornamentation Bowl.
This is a nice functional early washout bowl that features the raised ornamentation found on many pre-1900 toilets. This particular bowl was made for the John Douglas Company by Keystone Pottery. It’s intended to set onto a 4″ flange at a 14″ rough-in. As the inlet is only 1 1/4″, it’ll need to be attached to a hightank. Also, a throne seat will need to be fabricated for this bowl. There is quite a bit of discoloration around the base of the bowl, unfortunately American porcelain makers back in the day did not have quite the knack of making their porcelain impervious to staining. There are a couple dimples worn into the rim, this was from the original seat.
