Condition: We are not experts, please ask questions. As found at an Atlanta estate sale and we have not cleaned it.
Spanish "Jabon Medicina" translates to "medical or medicated soap." Pretty pure white porcelain, heavy but translucent. The label is applied gold leaf on Japan black done by a professional, who was known in those days as, a labeler. The lettering, in this case, looks to have been cut with the aid of a stencil plate. The red color is hand painted, as I can see the brush strokes. A beautiful and rare example of antique druggist shop furniture, as it was called.
The gold bands on the jar bottom are gold leaf also. The gold on the lid appears to have been painted and has not held up as well as the gold leaf.
It is not marked. Maybe from Mexico or Spain. We purchased it from an estate sale in Atlanta.
Stands about 10 inches high with the lid. Weighs 3 pounds 4 ounces.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks, or crazing. Very clean and pretty inside.
A 19th century gentleman in top coat and bow tie. His cheeks and lip are tinted pink. The photo is 2.75 by 3.25 inches. The case is 3.25 x 3.75. Daguerreotype Littlefield & Parsons thermoplastic case with brass hinges.
Condition: Case has cracks around the edge as shown. We are not experts, please ask questions. As found at an Atlanta estate sale and we have not cleaned it.
Old time blown mold glass candy jar with green tint to keep the candy fresh. 3 sided to sit in a corner.
15 1/2 inches tall with the lid. Each of the three sides are almost 9 inches across. Weighs over 7 pounds.
Shows age in that it has some bubbles and striation marks. And it has impurities or sand specks in the glass. Also the foot shows table wear.
The lid has a ribbed (not screw) neck. I'm guessing it had a cork or rubber gasket.
