Product Description

A stunning set of original ‘Brown glass’ apothecary bottles…

Commonly used in the chemist or pharmaceutical world for storage of medicines and liquids, these bottles date back to the earlier part of the 20th century. The bottles are offered in superb condition given their age, with all lids perfectly removable too. These are one of the nicest sets we have had…

The majority of the bottles show wear and tear to the labels, and they are a little tatty in places. That said, the overall condition adds to their charm and their authenticity, and they certainly do look great lined up together

There are two variations of bottles, five with larger (or taller lids). Although the bottles are glass in nature, the lids are of a moulded plastic form. They are all removable, and the ‘taller lid bottles’ reveal a plastic pouring spout under the lid…

We are offering the bottles in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and scuffs to the labels and and they are all a little tatty in places with maybe some small scratches to the glass. Other than that, this is a rare and beautiful set of original apothecary bottles perfect for a prop, for display or for ones curio cabinet. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections
