• Egyptian Apothecary Jar 1

  • From Sibella Court’s Cabinet of Curiosities

    A few years ago I bought the interior of an apothecary shop, all 50 feet of it. It was hand carved & crafted in France around 1900 and shipped to Egypt then to Australia & now it has settled in a restaurant in New York. Soon afterwards I purchased a portion of the contents which included these shielded brown glass stoppered apothecary bottles which were identified by the small label in Arabic as having once lived in an Egyptian medical institute during the reign of King Farouk, who founded the Faculty of Medicine at Farouk University in 1942.

    The amber glass bottles now live in The Society inc Cabinet of Curiosities nestled amongst many other objects of history and intrigue.
