One can really
marvel in front of such an object, especially considering that it
was found in an attic of Fallo during the remodeling of a house. The
person, who found it, maintains that it comes from France, and this
is confirmed by the trademark stamp of the company that made it (barely
visible under the cover). Many of our townspeople often went to Paris
to work, and this is a further proof of the hypothesis of its origin.
But what is it? It is a very old w.c.. It is known that in Fallo before
the arrival of the running water the hygienic conditions left much
to be desired. The chamber pot was commonly used and so was the custom
of emptying it in the streets. The article shown in the picture did
not solve the practical problems (once full, the lower container had
to be emptied), but, if for nothing else, provided the solution to
the problems of convenience and aesthetics.
