Anti-Goering Propaganda Pot

Posted in Propaganda Items with tags , , , , , on December 14, 2014 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is the fifth in a series of faux chamber pots put out by Fieldings of Staffordshire, England. On the front it says ‘Jerry No 2”. On the rear it says “Flip your ashes on Old Piggy″ and “Violation of Poland. Inside is a cartoon image of Goering. The design is a tongue in cheek one executed by the outstanding designer Enoch Boulton. These pots were viewed as being a little bad taste at the time, especially the ultra-rare large one that rotated on a wooden base and played “Rule Britannia”. Funnily enough I never realised that this one existed. An internet guy emailed me looking to buy my Mussolini and he ended up selling me the Goering one.

Full Size British Propaganda Chamber Pot

Posted in Propaganda Items with tags , , , on October 27, 2013 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is another one of a series of faux chamber pots put out by Fieldings of Staffordshire, England early in 1939 to take advantage of the, then recent, “Violation of Poland” by Hitler’s armies. This is the largest one I have seen, I include one of the more usual examples beside it to compare.

Inside is a cartoon image of Hitler, this one is by David Low, the cartoonist responsible for the Hitler caricatures on the other pots. The design is a tongue in cheek one executed by the outstanding designer Enoch Boulton. They got some stick for these pots as they were plainly chamber pots and they were accused of poor taste.

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is another one of a series of faux chamber pots put out by imitators of Fieldings of Staffordshire, England. Made early in 1939 to take advantage of the, then recent, “Violation of Poland” by Hitler’s armies. It is much larger in size than the other examples I have here. On the back of the inside rim it says ‘What would you do chums?”.

Inside is a caricature image of Hitler, this one not by David Low, the cartoonist responsible for the Hitler images on the other pots. They got some stick for these pots as they were plainly mini-chamber pots and they were accused of poor taste. This one has Ash Tray stamped rather prominently on the front, I am guessing in an attempt at deniability.

 

Anti-Mussolini Propaganda Pot

Posted in Propaganda Items with tags , , , , on August 11, 2013 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is the fourth one of a series of faux chamber pots put out by Fieldings of Staffordshire, England. On the front it says ‘Wop No. 1” and “Albania-Taranto-Bardia”. On the rear it says “We’ve got him on the run″. Inside is a cartoon image of Mussolini. The design is a tongue in cheek one executed by the outstanding designer Enoch Boulton. These pots were viewed as being a little bad taste at the time, especially the ultra-rare large one that rotated on a wooden base and played “Rule Britannia”. I truly wish I could find that one someday. The date of this piece is sometime between November and December 1940 since this is when Bardia fell to General Wavell and the Italian Fleet was torpedoed at Taranto. These Mussolini ones are much harder to find than the Hitler ones.

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is the third one of a series of faux chamber pots put out by Fieldings of Staffordshire, England early in 1939 to take advantage of the, then recent, “Violation of Poland” by Hitler’s armies. It is slightly larger in size than the other example I have. On the front it says ‘Flip Your Ashes On Old Nasty” and “The Violation of Poland”. On the rear it says “Gets-a-po″. Inside is a cartoon image of Hitler, probably by David Low, a prominent political cartoonist of the period. The design is a tongue in cheek one executed by the outstanding designer Enoch Boulton. These pots were viewed as being a little bad taste at the time, especially the ultra-rare large one that rotated on a wooden base and played “Rule Britannia”.

It is slightly larger in size than the other example I have. On the front it says ‘Chums, what would you do?”. Inside is a cartoon image of Hitler, this time not by David Low. The design is a tongue in cheek one imitating the more common Fieldings designs. These are not as well executed as the Fieldings/Crown Lynn ones.
