A family friend, Dr. William Ford, was the Chief Medical Officer on a United States Navy hospital ship stationed in the Mediterranean Sea during World War II, where they received and treated wounded military personnel from all of the various theaters of the war before repatriating them home. When his ship was decommissioned, he was allowed to keep this unique glass female urinal and other medical collectibles. Knowing that I loved unique vintage items, around 1995 he sent it to me, told me its history, and said it was quite rare and unique.

It is a poured-and-molded glass with a lovely, glossy pale green tint and shows some lovely iridescence in the light. It measures a large 11-3/8 inches in length, is 4 inches at the widest base, and 6 inches tall (from base to handle top). Along one side, in slightly raised lettering, are measurements indicating 4 oz, 8 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz, 20 oz, 24 oz, 28 oz and 32 oz so the doctor or nurse can ascertain the contents collected.

This is truly very rare, highly unique, and would be a real conversation piece in any collection of medical devices, instruments or memorabilia. The fact that it was actually used during World War Ii makes this piece extremely collectible and much prized.

Complimentary insurance is included for this unusual item.
