Other information

This ceramic jar was a typical apothecary container. It is characterised by its unique cylindrical form, which widens at the top and bottom, and is similar to a bamboo cane.  In ancient time, crude drugs used to be transported inside the bamboo canes from the East.

Originally from Persia, the jar has long been the emblem of apothecaries and herbalists due to the stanniferous enamel used for the production of majolica, which ensures that it is completely water-tight and can effectively store medication.
