Glass chamber pot for the sick, one of very few examples, from the late 19th century.

Among the items left by the last owner of the house is a small collection of items related to the world of medicine. It seems that Julia Huguet’s brother was a doctor and spent some summers with her in her Alcover house. For this reason we can find some very old x-rays, of great value, as well as everyday items such as syringes, thermometers, bedpans, etc.

Because of its unusual form, we highlight this glass chamber pot for women, especially curious for such an unusual shape of the aperture.
