A Mixed Quintet of Late 19thC Plain Glass Apothecary Bottles


Origin: English
Period: Nineteenth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1890
The Largest; Diameter: 3.5 inches, Height: 9 inches
Others ranging from 3.5 inches high to 6.25 inches high

A mixed collection of five clear glass apothecary bottles, in graduating sizes two with cut glass stoppers, and two marked ‘Table spoons 3 in one” and “Tea spoons 3 in one Oil Co”.

The stoppers are all original and in sound condition and there are no chips or cracks to report.

The unmarked bottles would have helped to form the apothecaries stable, being used daily to carry oils, water or mixtures whilst the two others are designed to measure tea and table spoons measures.

A novel way to fill a space.
