Sizes differ. The William Flowers prescription in the first and third image is:
3.5 x 5.25 in.
9 x 13.5 cm

These are fabulous items to use in all your art projects. Don't you love the old writing? You can cut them up or use them whole.

Take a look at the last image. Faith Lloyd used prescriptions and apothecary labels ( to decoupage the frame of an IKEA mirror. It looks fantastic!

PLEASE NOTE: Your prescriptions will differ from the ones shown. Many of them are written in pencil, are creased and may have tattered edges. After all, some of these are almost 100 years old!

If you are making a purchase from both shops, I'm happy to combine your orders to save on the shipping cost. I'll simply refund you the overcharge or create a custom order, whichever you prefer.


Etsy has now begun to charge sellers when a customer finds their shop via another site or search engine (Google, Bing, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.). We are forced to pay them 15% of the total order (including taxes and shipping!). It would be greatly appreciated if, when you come across an ad or listing via any site other than Etsy itself, you do not click on it. Instead, if you would simply go to and search for that item you would be doing all the small businesses on Etsy a great favour. Thank you.

Why not 'Favourite' us while you're here. That way you can find us, again. After all, it's so easy to get lost on Etsy, isn't it?.

Shipping was super fast and everything came well packaged. There were even a few freebies thrown in, what a lovely surprise! Would definitely buy from this seller again.

I used these as part of a Christmas gift for my father, who does mixed-media art and uses a lot of ephemera in his paintings. They were perfect and arrived so quickly I couldn't believe it!
