Superb Victorian Hand Blown, Reverse Painted Glass Chemist Bottle
Truely WONDERFUL Condition Victorian Chemists Jar.
Hand blown and reverse painted and the paint is in such good condition. Clearly seen is a wonderful lion and unicorn...central royal crest and the wording COLOCYNTH.
It has a hand painted tin lid. No damage. Large rough pontil (as there should be) to the base and an internal photograph shows really minimal paint loss...some around the back bottom edge.
A wonderful size too....SO decorative. COLOCYNTH, Bitter Apple or Desert Gourd has been used by Chemists for Centuries. The oil from its seeds is used for medicinal and soap production.
I would prefer collection or courier because of its worth.
