A unique antique apothecary bottle from a French pharmacy in the Burgundy region.

This magnificent apothecary bottle dates back to before 1900, most likely between 1850 and 1880.
As the second photo shows, this bottle is mouth-blown and has a, what they call 'combination pontil-scar' which is a way to be able to date the bottle.
The 'scar' shows where the blowpipe was attached.
The glass stopple also shows the marques of the use of a blowpipe and has those beautiful bubbles in the glass.

This bottle comes from a pharmacie called A. Martin in the village Moulins-Engilbert, which is mentioned on the label on the inside.
It used to contain a sirop against that well known illness scurvy. Incredible!

This is a gorgeous and unique addition to a glass collection.

The bottle measures almost 18 cm's high and has a diameter of 7.5 cm's.
In inches this will be 7.1" high and 2.95" in diameter.
To avoid damage to the label, I did not clean the bottle in or out.

I will ship the bottle wrapped in bubbly foil and a carton box so it will reach you safely.

*** I try to calculate the shipping costs as well as possible but by purchasing two or more items, they might become higher than the real costs. I always refund the amount payed too much when it passes 1 USD ***
