French enamel flat back container - medical use. This curious flat back container with a small spout at the bottom once had a medical use - it had a hose attached to the spout and a tap and nozzle attached to that and was used for 'ladies things' as the man who sold it to me said!

Nowadays these are collectible and are used for flower displays to hang on a wall because of their flat back. You could use it for whatever you wanted of course!

The container has graded measurements up to 2 litres (over 4 pints). It is a mottled white graniteware with blue flecks. There is a handle and spout on the front and the back is flat.

The container measures 10½ins (26cm) to the top of the flat back (which is higher than the front) and is 4ins (10cm) from front to back at the bottom (not including the handle). It is in good vintage condition with a few chips here and there but no major damage, just shabby chic.

This is a nice piece of collectible enamelware with an interesting history to amuse your friends with!
I have another of these in blue - see last photo
