" puce" is a COLOR! I probably spelled it wrong. The gist of my statement that older toilets were made in some very unique designer colors and the whole decor was designed around that color. So if you broke the lid, you either had to redesign the whole bathroom, or pony up several hundred to find that unique lid! I wlll try to find the correct color name. It might be a word tha my mother made up for a yucky color!
