Apothecaries, who were trained to diagnose, prescribe and produce treatments through an apprenticeship, acted as doctors in the 18th century. They knew little about chemistry but figured out treatments that could address certain symptoms through trial and error — and observation. Apothecary shops in Colonial America sold many remedies, most of which were imported into Great Britain from around the world. Patients could purchase these remedies along with household items, like toothbrushes, that might be found in today's pharmacies. Eighteenth-century shoppers might also have found tobacco and spices. Visit the Apothecary trade shop in the historic area to see the original jars for yourself.

I was disgusted when I opened the package and found this. I thought I was purchasing a real jar, albeit a very small one as an ornament. I realize that's my fault, but it was still majorly disappointing to find a flat ornament rather than a small jar ornament.
Beautiful. It is a small ornament which I like very much because that's what I prefer
