PAIR OF SMALL APOTHECARY CHEMIST SHOP GLASS CARBOYS

£400

An almost matched pair of glass carboys with pear shaped stoppers. One bottle is marked with the number 4 and the other number 5. The larger bottle is only 1/2 inch bigger at 16.5 inches tall. Each bottle must have stood in a sunny chemist shop front window as the glass has a crizzled/crazed effect which may add to the appearance for some. When filled with coloured water this does not notice. Apart from one tiny star crack in the body off one bottle they are in great condition. Ground pontil to both bottles denoting an earlier hand blown bottle. English C1860/80.
