Urine director, Middle East, 1851-1910

A spoon-like bowl is connected to a tube which is decorated with three carved bands on the handle. The female user directs urine into the spoon-like bowl and it is channelled through the tube. Such devices are still available today for use on long journeys or camping trips and especially at music festivals where the queues for toilets are often long.
