Antique Whitall Tatum & Co Huge Specimen Apothecary Museum Jar 1895 25" Tall For Sale
VERY RARE ANTIQUE WHITALL TATUM & CO HUGE SPECIMEN JAR 1895 Probably the largest Whitall Tatum jar you'll ever see! This jar came out of the Bell Museum of Natural History in Minnesota when they decided after 100+ years that they wanted a different style of jar to display their huge collection of fish, snakes, frogs etc. this one is as found with the paper wrapped around it, I don't believe this one was ever actually used and is in like new condition. It is hand blown glass and It has a pontil, bubbles and whittle marks. It also has two glass hooks on the bottom of the lid for suspending the specimen. The only imperfections are a few tiny little chips in the lid that don't affect how it would seal and are probably from the manufacturing process. I've got a large collection of these jars and this is one of the nicest ones I've seen. Please ask if you have any questions.
