Vintage Apothecary Jars (Each)

There’s no doubt that both of today’s apothecary jars are the real thing! In fact our brown jar is still sealed, with ammonium acetate crystals sitting inside it – how crazy is that! Fortunately for us ammonium acetate is non-volatile and highly soluble in water, so there’ll be no issue disposing of the contents of the jar should you wish to – you’ll just need to cut through the wax which is sealing the lid – easy peasy! The taller, clear jar was also definitely put to work in some scientist’s lab – when we found it was filled with some peculiar orange substance, which fortunately washed away very easily! It’s a decent size, so will make for a nice display piece, but you could also use it for serving water to your guests – it’s not so large that it would peculiar sitting on your dinner table.

A very attractive and fairly unusual pair of jars that should make some collector very happy indeed!
