Could you estimate the value of a JH Weatherby & Sons chamber

This answer was rated:

Could you estimate the value of a JH Weatherby & Sons chamber pot (without lid)? It is in the "Peony" pattern with the Hanley, England durability flag stamp, which I understand was not used before 1892.
Thank you!

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am pleased to be able to assist you. The company was founded in Tunstall in 1891 and moved to Hanley the following year. It first made domestic ware such as basins and pitchers, later moving into assorted tableware and giftware.


The "Durability" stamp was only used for one year at the Tunstall location (1891-1892) but was used at Hanley from 1892-1924. The name "Falconware" was added to the flag motif from 1925 onwards, by the way.


They typical retail for a chamber pot sans lid will be from $45 to $65 pending demand at any given time, from that era. On sites like eBay, they often retail for under $20, like this example:


So if you decide to list it there, be sure to add a comfortable reserve. These are most often used as planters for décor use these days...a stark contrast to what they were intended to be used for!
