Antique French apothecary amber handblown glass jar/bottle, long ago contained "Prussiat de Potasse" (prussiat of potash, or prussiate of soda), a yellow powder which was used as a salt substitute and in the production of wine and citric acid. The jar is in excellent antique (circa late 1880s - very early 1900s) condition with no wear, chips or cracks. Not a paper label...applied and then glass is re-fired to seal. Comes with its original tin lid/cap that has darkened over the decades, with some limited surface rust but no dents. Start or add to your collection of French apothecary jars!

Measures 7.75 inches tall; 8.5 inches tall with cap on. The opening at top of the neck is 1.5 inches in diameter; the base of the jar/bottle is 3.25 inches in diameter.
