Rare Free Blown Amber Glass Apothecary or Drug Store Jar with a Blown and Cut & Polished Octagonal Amber Glass Stopper ! Shows concentric circles under base.
Original Glass Label Reads: PILUL. PURG.ANTES
My Latin translation loosely translates to : Pills. Purge. Intestines
( If someone else can translate better, please let me know )
Very Nice professionally formed top lip ! The polished inside stopper opening is perfectly matched to the polished blown hollow stopper. The stoppers octagon top was originally spun round and the flat sides were cut & polished ,even the top and bottom edges were finely polished to remove sharp edges !
Shoulder of Jar and the Stopper top are both engraved with a number 107 which I believe was the quantity of pills that it could hold.
Medium size Bottle stands 6 1/2 inches tall to the top of the stopper and 3 1/8 inches across base diameter.
A couple of Nice glass air bubbles with a Base which shows a nicely polished blow pipe pontil mark.
Honest round wear pattern on bottom.
