I absolutely love old and antique medicine, poison and apothecary bottles! They are usually beautifully made and come in an array of colours, shapes, sizes and designs, making them very collectable and beautiful to display!
This lovely hexagonal green Boots Cash Chemists apothecary bottle once contained poisonous Carbolic Oil, which was usually used as a local skin anaesthetic. Dating from around the 1900’s to the 1920’s, this gorgeous bottle is in excellent condition for its age, being free from any chips or cracks and retaining the original sticker label on the front. The bottle also bears the words “Not to be Taken” in relief along the sides. Internally, the bottle has some debris and is missing its original cork stopper, which is easily replaceable if necessary.
Measuring approximately 11cm tall and 4cm wide across at base (at the widest points), this bottle is hard to find in this condition, and would make an excellent addition to any antique medicine, poison or apothecary collection. Looks amazing on display, especially when set against a brightly lit window!
