Vintage Whitall Tatum Glass Apothecary Specimen Jar 12.75" Clamp Sealer Pat 1895:
From a local estate, here is a grand old apothecary specimen jar with glass lid and clamp seal. The jar stands an impressive 12.75" tall with lid, about 14.25" tall with the clamp installed. The jar is hand-blown with pontil mark on the bottom, the lid is marked "Whitall, Tatum & Co., Philadelphia New York," with a patent date of June 11, 1895. Jar and lid show some age, and there are the remains of an old rubber seal ring around the rim. The jar has a little roughness around the inner rim, and there are flaws and straw marks inside the glass, one looks like a crack and one looks like a ding, neither of the flaws can be felt from either side of the glass. Other than that, just normal bubbles, straw marks, and some grime from decades of storage. Just a grand old jar, I didn't try to clean it, looks awesome and definitely old.Thanks for looking!
