Inside the chamber pot there is a hand painted bust of Napoleon
These pots were produced so that the British people could relieve themselves on the unpopular general, and to let the ‘Little French Corporal perish’.
As well as the hand painted bust of Emperor Napoleon himself inside, the Georgian twin-handled chamber pot has a diameter of 10.5 inches and features hand painted ochre leaves on the outside.
The pearlware pots came into production in 1805, around the time of the Battle of Trafalgar. This was when the British defeated Napoleon, but he then went on to invade countries across Europe before being forced to abdicate.

Chris Elmy, specialist at Ipswich-based Lockdales which is auctioning off the chamber pot, said about it: "This dates from the time of the Napoleonic Wars, 1803 to 1815, and is an amusing piece of anti-Napoleon propaganda.
"Napoleon Bonaparte was the emperor of France, who effectively tried to 'take over the world' in the early part of the 19th century.
Mr Elmy added: ”He succeeded in conquering much of continental Europe before he was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, and held prisoner in exile on the island of St Helena until his death in 1821.
