Extra Large 'Magnesia' Apothecary Bottle

Extra Large 'Magnesia' Apothecary Bottle

Code: 10126


H: 64cm (25.2")


An absolutely stunning and highly decorative reverse painted extra large apothecary bottle circa early 1900’s standing at 64cm.

The bottle at some time in the past has had its inside paper removed and naively been painted white to renew its external appearance which looks lovely.

The crest is in really good condition with the ‘magnesia’ contents label still reading well and unusually a majority of the oversized gilt stopper remains.

Used in Chemist shops as large display pieces and because of their fragility these amazing bottles are becoming harder to find.
