A simply stunning, very large, single Royal Pharmaceutical Society reverse painted white glass 'Colocynth' apothecary jar. This scarce example is superbly and intricately detailed with gold leaf accents and displays exceptionally well.
This type of jar was produced in limited quantities to commemorate the 150 year anniversary of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society having been founded in 1841.
In excellent order, this is ready to grace any collection.
One of several jars we currently have on offer from the RPS collection. Here you are purchasing the white colocynth jar. Do have a look at the other stunning examples too.
