A pair of ceramic apothecary jars, each cylindrical with a round lid.  Each with a Latin name: B Lucatelli or  Rosmarin (Rosemary). Each white glazed, variously decorated in the baroque taste with flowers and fauna, and a blue armorial shield with 3 beehives. They probably are Delftware (Dutch tin-glazed earthenware).
