This Imperial floor mount fireclay urinal was manufactured by J. L. Mott Ironworks, patented in 1910. It was salvaged from a bank in Virginia that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The urinal is 49.5" tall and 24.25" wide. The urinals, once recessed 13" into a wall, have partially unglazed side sections.
The top of the urinal has a 1 1/2" diameter hole for plumbing, while the basin at the bottom of the piece has a 4 1/2" to 5" hole (varies slightly per piece) to fit a drain.

Condition: This urinal is in good salvaged condition for its age. Surface crazing is present in areas throughout the piece, as well as significant discoloration to the glaze, mostly around the inlet and drain holes. Scratches, scuffing, pitting, dings, and nicks are present in the glaze.

History: This urinal was salvaged from the Liberty Trust building in the heart of Downtown Roanoke, Virginia, as it is being converted to a boutique hotel. Also known as First National Bank, or the People's Federal Building, this building opened in 1910. At the time, it was the most technologically advanced building of the area, boasting state-of-the-art plumbing, heating, and an electric elevator. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
This building and items from it are featured on Season 11, Episode 10, of the DIY Network show, Salvage Dawgs.
