$725.00

Glazed ceramic apothecary jars were used for storing herbs and other substances for making medicines in the 18th century. Many feature beautiful designs or coats-of-arms with a lot of symbolism. This one has a beautiful crowned double headed eagle. The banner at the bottom has the words Santos Barrita. It also has a blank heart in the center. Sometimes a blank area was left on the jar in which the apothecary could write the jars contents. The jar is antiqued white in color with a rich blue design.
