A fantastic collection of green apothecary bottles. There are four bottles all with a vibrant green colour. Three have the traditional ribbed design to the glass for poison  and 'Not to be Taken' moulded into the glass. The largest bottle has a chrome dispenser which doesn't work. One of the smaller poison bottles has its original stopper. A wonderful collection of antique and vintage green glass bottles perfect for display in a modern interior to add soul and character.


Small nibble to rim of larger ribbed bottle. These are salvaged bottles. The taller 'not to be taken' example has its cork inside the bottle. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
