Antique,ceramic,miniature Pharmacy /chemist's/apothecary Ointment Pot /crock Jar For Sale
Absolutely 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" !! This particular product was originally marketed in about 5 different container sizes. This particular size was the very smallest of the range. This is NOT a replica...it is guaranteed an original, dating to around 1900. The ointment pot measures about 1 1/4" in diameter and stands only 1 5/8" tall. Too cute for words! The pot has the customary glaze crazing consistent with the age of the item, and is in amazing condition! Just the cutest little antique pharmacy item with under-glaze print in small cursive font...a must for any pharmacy collection!
