Delftware drug jar (jar)


English delftware drug jars like this one would have been used by apothecaries and druggists to store powders, ointments, syrups and oils. Beautifully decorated and expensive, they would have been a symbol of their owner’s professional success. This one would have contained nerve ointment.
