Vintage Apothecary Jar - Amber
Beautiful amber glass apothecary bottle. It has two unique features – one being that it is a square bottle rather than the more common round shape. The other is that its charmingly shaped, original sepia colored paper label is COMPLETELY INTACT – a rare occurrence. There are a few spatter marks which we have tried to capture in the pictures. The label states the bottle’s former contents to have been Spirit of Ethyl Nitrite (Sweet Spirit of Nitre) from John Wyeth & Brother in Philadelphia.
It’s in lovely, clean vintage condition with no chips, cracks or dings. The bottle is empty and has a cork stopper which we have not tried to remove. There is a small piece of cork which is loose on the inside of the bottle. There are no markings on the back or the bottom.
These vintage apothecary bottles are so charming and if displayed near natural light, the deep honey color is greatly enhanced - just gorgeous. Add to a collection or display alone as it has its own natural appeal.
The bottle measures 7 3/4 inches tall. With the cork, it measures 8 ¼ inches tall. Each side of the square base is 2 ½ inches across.
