FIG. 1 is a front elevational view of a plumbing fixture according to our new design;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a left side elevational view thereof, the right side elevational view thereof being a mirror image of the left side shown; and,

FIG. 4 is a rear elevational view thereof.

In a preferred embodiment, the nature of this product is a plumbing fixture in the form of a toilet or a bidet.

The dash-dash broken lines in FIG. 2 are for the purpose of illustrating unclaimed surfaces or environment of the design. The dot-dash-dot broken line in FIG. 2 defines an unclaimed boundary of the design. The broken lines are thus not part of the claim.
