From the Medieval Period through the early 20th Century, Apothecaries hand prepared medicines and herbal remedies.In order to keep the ingredients pure, well fitted jars were required. Some were even designed to hold leeches in case there was a need for blood letting.(ugh!)
These lovely glass jars with screw -on metal lids provide are a beautiful homage to early medical jars. They are perfect for a kitchen and can hold such foodstuffs as rice and pasta.They are good to hold potpourri or other floral supplies as well.
As far a leeches or eye of newt, if you want to use these beauties for such purposes: who are we to judge?
