Product Description

A stunning set of original apothecary jars…

Commonly used in the chemist or pharmaceutical world for storage of medicines and liquids, these jars date back to the earlier part of the 20th century. The jars are offered in superb condition given their age, with all lids perfectly removable too. These are the nicest set we have had, made in porcelain and with a shiny or glossy exterior. The jars are of Bavarian origin, and stamped under one of the jars, complemented with Gold leaf trimmings

The majority of the jars show a little surface wear and tear, yet the overall condition is brilliant. The Black and White colours look ace with the splattering of Gold leaf. When lined up together they look stunning and would be great for display, or even functional for storage being generally clean inside…

We are offering the jars in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and scuffs in areas, but nothing that we would say is detrimental to the overall structure and look and feel. Other than that, this is a rare and beautiful set of original apothecary jars that are perfect as wedding props, for display or for storage. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections
