Antique,ceramic,miniature Pharmacy /chemist's/apothecary Ointment Pot /crock Jar For SaleAbsolutely delightful little antique, ceramic, under-glaze printed Chemist's/apothecary's ointment pot which originally contained a "cure-all" / quack remedy. Exaggerated claims made for the "cure" of "all pulmonary complaints, soreness of the chest & lungs, sore throat, rheumatism, croup in children, spinal diseases, epilepsy or fits etc" !!
