This Memphis style Italian Glass Apothecary Jar Set, has sculptural brushed aluminum lids that are sealed with a rubber gasket and would display just about anything quite nicely! Personally I think they seem to beg for cotton swabs and other bathroom accoutrements, but that would be up to you!

I was unable to find out too much about these jars that is 100% for-sure. I was able to find a little info about an Italian glass manufacturer named Cerve (started in the 50's, hit success in the 60s's), although they have a different logo now...one which I assume is a replacement for the double stag head on the bottom of these containers.

If you have more info about the Whom and When of these containers please let me know!

Condition is quite fine on these Memphis style Italian glass containers! The glass has minor manufacture imperfections. Both have pinprick bubbles. The large container has a ripple in the glass that at first looks like a hairline, but it does not go through to the other side and is from the manufacturing process. The aluminum of the lids are also in fine shape with only a minor nick or two to each. (see pict 5). The rubber seal is like new on each. Overall they seem to be very gently used and do not smell like coffee or anything!

Both marked "Cerve Italy" with a double stag logo and #'s. Rubber seal reads "Cerve Parma" and "per alimenti".
