Description: W.C. or lavatory pan and its wooden seat. Pan is blue and white moulded ceramic, marked: 'Doulton's patent The Combination London and Glasgow'. From the Manx Museum basement and presumably an original Noble's Hospital fitting of the 1880s.

Henry Bloom Noble was a businessman and benefactor. In 1886, the foundation stone was laid at Crellin’s Hill for the first Noble’s Hospital, for which Noble and his wife had donated the site and an endowment. In 1922 the original Noble’s Hospital building was given for use as a new Manx Museum, which celebrates its centenary in 2022.
