The history of apothecary jars
The use of apothecary jars can be traced back to human civilization. Glazed earthenware was used during the Renaissance period in both public and private pharmacies to store a variety of pharmaceuticals. The contents (solids or liquids) of the jars determined their size and shape. Some had ceramic tops, but most were sealed with a bladder, parchment, or cloth secured with a string. Inscriptions identifying the contents were written either directly on the jar or a separate label.
