    Let me begin by saying Mansfield makes great products and this is all in good fun. Now that being said take a look at the *2005 King Louis XIV throne toilet.* For me it's just SO bad that it could actually cross beck over into the good category again. Perhaps thats what happened here:

    Call me old fashioned but when I'm taking care of business in private I'm not seeking a Disney theme ride experience.
    For $3200.00 all this toilet lacks is harpsichord music and optional hand maiden.

    I can think may things to spend $3200.00 on but a toilet is not 1 of them never mind that one.

    toilet

    One thing about that one, is that you could put a chamber pot under it and make it portable.

    You gotta hand it to Mansfield too,

    They make a fancy box and stick it over their $80 toilet and market it in the $3000 plus range.
