A beautiful Victorian earthenware apothecary jar.
A super decorative & rare survivor with all original paintwork, gilding & labelling.
Most pharmacies in the Victorian era would have a set of three of these jars, Tamarinds, Leeches & Honey would have been common place behind the counter back then but sadly few survived.
A fantastic thing.

Wear commensurate with age as pictured, structurally sound with no damage to the jar. Lid with historic restoration in a very Kintsugi-esque fashion, not hidden or blended, just repaired to be usable once again which I rather like...
