At 7 5/8" wide across this is a fairy small chamber pot but not quite as small as the one in my vintage training chair. It could be child size or perhaps for a guest bed room. But at least with this you don't have to go outside on a cold night to use the outhouse. You or perhaps a servant could empty it into the outhouse in the morning.
It is a nice pattern and would be quite attractive when it has not been used.
Likely this is around a 100 years old. Later versions were solid color and indoor plumbing was much more common after the early 20th century.
