Large 19th century apothecary or chemist jar with a white and gilt enamel painted label and original contents, from the large private collection of a retired pharmacist. The collection includes many bottles, laboratory glasses, potions and pastes, an iron cork press or mould, glass cabinet labels, measures and other items.
This bottle label is labelled SPIR. ARMORACIAE CO. for compound spirit of horseradish. It was used for diuretic remedies, in dropsy attended with debility, especially in the case of drunkards.
There is a smooth pontil mark to the bottom.
Size-7.75 inches high by 2.75 inches diameter.
A great apothecary bottle for collection or display, in very good condition, with an interesting history.
The last photo shows more of the other bottles in the collection, if more are desired. But this listing is for the one bottle.
