A lovely, old apothecary bottle with pretty cream and white tones. This large bottle still has its original contents, labels and stopper and would be a unique addition to a shelf or table display or would look great in a cabinet of curiosities. 

Dating from around the 1950s/60s, this pretty bottle was manufactured by Bleasdale Manufacturing Ltd, a company based in York, England who made and sold emulsions, oils, syrups, and a wide range of other pharmaceutical preparations. Phenacetin was a pain relieving and fever reducing drug which was widely used following its introduction in 1887 until the middle of the 20th century.

I fell in love with the simple shape and tones of this piece and think it would look lovely styled with other rustic, decorative pieces. The contents are obviously not to be used and the bottle could be cleaned if you would prefer. It measures:

H24cm x D9cm
