Slaps forehead... Of course it's a spittoon!

The spit probably dried up a few years ago too...

I think it is clever, Janet!

Maybe I should find some old metal bedpans...

Looks like just what you need! I recommend you wash it first. 😀

Question: Do you think anyone would be offended? It hasn't been in use in decades and is an antique....


Just a report on this - worked like a charm!

Looks great. Was anyone offended?

I finally understand the point of spiral cutting a ham.

Hee hee! It's practically a law that you have to serve ham biscuits at any gathering in the South (large parts of it, anyway). A spiral-sliced ham is much easier to serve this way.

That looks just perfect Janet! I doubt anyone but you knew it was a spittoon unless you told them. To me it looks like something made for such a ham from some fancy "Crate and Barrel" type place.

+1. It fits it perfectly and looks great.

That looks so nice Janet, and it looks like it was the perfect size. I love the color, too.
