I have a strange feeling that I could have done with one of these in the middle of last night! ~ as I 'think' they hold 'chamber pots' ~ for the rich and privileged gentry in Victorian times, with some poor sod of a servant having to empty them in the morning.

You have it. Pot cabinets, they were called, or pot cupboards.
