Victorian Chemist/Pharmacy Jar
During the 19th century the pharmacy or apothecary was part of the main hub of every town or village, as this was before the National Health Service, people would rely on their local chemist for advice, and if they were lucky enough to afford a doctor, their prescriptions. Medicines were mostly stored in glass bottles or jars, these came in various colours of glass.
We have a group of clear glass chemist jars all with original labels. These would have been used in most pharmacys of the Victorian period and would come with a extensive array of different medicines of the time, the chemist would use the contents to make his own prescritions with.
All are in good original condition, no chips or cracks.
The smallest jar is 16cm high
