puzzling me since it first was published ---

If the artifact described in "Tollenkar's Lair" as looking like a "giant chamber pot with three handles" is supposed to be something, what the heck is it?

I'm old. I need these questions answered before it gets too late :)

But you could always just take it as written. It's a giant chamber pot, which is to say a chamber pot for giants. Which gigantic contents explains why it needs three handles to lift. One handle for each human slave porter, perhaps.

Those are good answers.

But I was being antic. I had nothing particular in mind except to create a puzzling description.

May I suggest a simple typographic revision?

From "looking like a giant chamber pot with three handles" to "looking like a giant's chamber pot with three handles".

But does this pass the smell test?
