A large antique glass chemists advertising carboy.
A beautiful & exceptionally rare chemist's carboy, hand blown, on an ebonised oak stand & finished with a large wheel cut star to the front, likely a representation of the pharmaceutical cross. An extremely hard-to-find piece, once filled with colourful liquid & graced a chemist window as part of an eye catching advertising display.
French, late 19th century
Wear commensurate with age, unrestored, very good overall. The interior has some expected marking to the base which will likely dissapear once it is filled. The top section would originally have been sealed with a cork once filled.
Height measurement includes stand & neck (46cm in height without stand).
Collection preferred due to glass though a UK courier service my be possible.
