A fantastic antique pair of apothecary bottles. The two glass vessels date from the Victorian period. The bottle is embossed by the maker, the York Glass Company. The company was in operation between 1830 and 1930. The stopper has a lovely small measuring flask with hand etched scale. The larger measuring flask has a hand etched scale to the side and Royal crown crest for customs. A fabulous pair of antique chemist glassware. Perfect to add soul and character to any modern interior.


The small stopper measuring flask has missing glass to the spout. 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.
