Item Ref



Large 19th century apothecary or chemist jar with very nice white, red, black and gold printed label under glass, from the large private collection of a retired pharmacist. The collection includes many bottles, laboratory glasses, potions and pastes, an iron cork press or mould, glass cabinet labels, measures and other items.
This empty bottle label is labelled OL: Camphor: for camphor oil. Camphor oil was used in the treatment of nervous depression, acne, inflammation, arthritis, muscular aches and pains, sprains, rheumatism, bronchitis, coughs, colds, fever, flu and infectious diseases.
This bottle has both the pouring and exterior dome stoppers.
Size-8.5 inches tall by 3 inches diameter.
Weight-525 grams.
With just a smooth chip to the underside edge of the exterior stopper, this is in very nice condition overall.
It will be an asset for collection or display.
The last photo shows more of the other bottles in the collection, if more are desired. But this listing is for the one bottle.
