Late 19th century cobalt blue glass ‘NOT TO BE TAKEN’ apothecary poison bottle
A wonderful Victorian cobalt blue chemist’s poison bottle.
Use widely during the latter part of the 19th century by chemists and druggists to store a variety of chemicals which were deemed hazardous and potentially deadly.
For safety bottles such as this were made with a textured surface, and also quite often produced with words of warning.
This lovely example is six sided with ridged surface panels, the front reads POISON, NOT TO BE TAKEN.
In good condition, with some minor surface residue marking. No cracks or chips.
