I think you probably have to see this piece to properly appreciate it – it’s quite a bit larger than you’d expect it to be, and its size, combined with that fantastic deep red glass makes for quite an impressive piece! I’m not sure of its age – the lady I bought it from had had it for a good few years, but couldn’t remember where it had originally come from. Personally though I don’t think it’s very old – at least I don’t think it’s from the period when they would have been using jars like these in pharmacies, that I’m fairly certain of. But even if it’s not particularly old, it’s still a very attractive and fairly unusual piece of glass – sitting alongside other pieces of coloured glasses, this jar’s definitely going to stand out as one of your stars!
