Item Ref



19th century apothecary or chemist jar with a gilt and black painted label and traces to the sides of the original powdered contents, from the large private collection of a retired pharmacist. It includes many bottles, laboratory glasses, potions and pastes, an iron cork press or mould, glass cabinet labels, measures and other items.
This bottle label is labelled Thymol, which is an antiseptic, good for bacteria and fungi, and comes from the plant thyme. It was even used by the Egyptians for mummification, and is a powerful antioxidant.
The stopper is cut glass and faceted. It has not been removed, although I am sure it could be worked loose.
Size-6 7/8 inches high by 2 3/8 inches diameter.
A great bottle for collections or display in very good condition.
The last photo shows more of the other bottles in the collection, if more are desired. But this listing is for the one bottle.
