A pair of apothecary jars, with round lids, of typical form. Each with Latin name, B Lucatelli, and C Rosmarin (Rosemary). Each white glazed, variously decorated in the Italianate taste with flowers and fauna, and blue armorial shield with 3 beehives.

Balsam of Lucatelli is an antiquated medical compound that was administered for tuberculosis, made of balsam of Peru and other ingredients.

Very good condition overall.
