The Apothecary jars were probably blown in full size one piece molds for body shape and then the neck and lip were finished. The bases have a pontil rod scar. The stoppers were pressed in a mold. These were the bottles that lined the back shelves of the drug store. Also, these jars were sold in sets and often had a layer of thin glass glued over a gilded paper label. These jars held numerous substances. An apothecary shop would probably have one hundred or more of these jars in storage. Price of $150.00 for both jars.
