{FOUND Objects} Antique Glass Apothecary Pharmacy Bottle

$5 SHIPPING FOR EVERY STEAL

Back for those who missed it!!!


Remember we mentioned earlier today to be ready for more great found items?  Well, we were NOT kidding around!  We are super excited to introduce these incredible hand-blown apothecary medicine glass bottles all the way from the Netherlands. They are TRULY super rare to find and bring an absolutely authentic vintage touch to your décor!

First, a little history lesson is in order.  An apothecary is a historical name for a medical professional who formulates and dispenses materia medica (that’s medical material to those of you that don’t speak Latin!) to physicians, surgeons and patients — a role now served by a pharmacist or a chemist.*
 
These bottles were once used to store medicines and medicine materials. We are not sure about the era but guessing 1930s. Just think of the times they were used at and how many lives they have impacted! And their next chapter features YOU!

These bottles are in a great condition and will look great in your bathroom filled with soap or lotion, in your kitchen filled with rice or flower, in your office filled with clips and other office supplies or in any of your cabinets displayed atop a few books.  They also make adorable budvases, sun catchers on the window sill or simply interesting conversation pieces.  Line them up or stack them on your mantel or cluster them together on a cool vintage tray.  
 
These Bottles are all in good condition but they could show wear, age, timeworn marks, faded lettering or minor chips! All due to usage and old age. Most of them have labels but some don't. Some labels are torn or faded. Most have lids. All are amber glass. And we just LOVE them :)


Enjoy,
