I have three of these with lids. This is the only one that is colored. I remember when I lived at home on the farm, we had 7 bedrooms, there were pots under most of the beds. Kind of strange since we had a really nice bathroom. The farm was built in the 1850's so maybe they were left over from a past generation. Anyway I got the ones I have now from garage sales or the thrift store, I don't remember. Thrust me they were bleached and washed really really good. I won't be buying anymore, in fact I might just keep this one.
