The toilet bowl cover of this invention includes an
insert strip or sheet 14 which is normally suñiciently
stiff to be self-supporting and yet is pliable, and may be
made of such things as plastic, water impervious jute
or the like.
As can be clearly seen in FIGURES 5

constructed with curved upper and lower edges 14a and

Referring now -to FIGURE 1, a toilet bowl cover 10

and in this case is shown associated with a wall-type
tank 12. Toilet bowls are manufactured with this type
shown one of the means for holding the cover in place.
Thus, a plurality of elastic loops 21 are attached as by `
basting to one end of the decorative cover 15 and a plu
r-ality of hooks 22 are attached to the other end of the
cover 15. 'Ihe loop portion 21a is designed to fit over
