Many of these places might properly be called cabinets, so exquisitely clean is the wodwork inside and out. The figure represents the door of a privy in Tokio. This was inlaid in designs of different-colored woods, and the whole affair was a dainty bit of cabinet work.
The urinal is usually of wood, though porcelain ones are often seen. The wooded one are in the form of a tapering box secured against the wall of the closet.
