I’m not sure that these apothecary bottles have any age to them – their condition is immaculate and the glass is moulded, not handblown – but then again, I don’t know why they would make these bottles new, and most sites seem to date this style of jar to the 1930s. So perhaps these have just been very well looked after, or were never actuallly used?
They’re a very attractive set – I love those hexagonal lids, how flat they are, and the way that the glass is sandblasted so that the lids slide into the bottle with relative ease. Very cool indeed! I’m not entirely sure what you would use them for though? I can only really see them in a bathroom filled with salts, or perhaps they would work well in a kitchen for olive oil or salad dressing? They really are lovely bottles, so I hope someone can find a good use for them!
Dimensions: Each bottle measures 14cm tall x 7cm in diameter
