We had two small metal plaques. One was in the head and had the operating instructions for the toilet: ". . . pump with short strokes to empty the bowl." The other says, "Pasop vir die hond" which I understand means "Beware of the dog" in Afrikaans. We probably bought it at Groot Constantia, a winery in South Africa.
Ted has both of them--plus a row of assorted carved tiki's along a window sill. He's promised to look for someone to take pictures of them and email them to me to post here.
