A Good Quintet of Late 19thC Fluted Green Glass Apothecary Bottles


Origin: English
Period: Late Nineteenth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1890
Base Diameter: 3.5 inches
Height: 9 inches

Of fluted design, with plain inset banner shaped labels the five green glass apothecary bottles with clear cut glass square stoppers and mark ‘W’ to bases.

All five bottles are in superb condition with no flaws to report outside of general wear consummate with age. Two of the stoppers are currently jammed shut but could probably be released with warm water if so desired.

These bottles are all typically unmarked and would have helped to form the apothecaries stable, being used daily to carry oils, water or mixtures.

To find five together in this kind of condition is pleasing and they would dutifully form a beautiful display of medicinal ages past amongst a contemporary kitchen backdrop. Try it.
