A charming pair of late 17th century (circa 1670) Italian (Savona) maiolica apothecary jars

These " arbarelli", as they are called in Italy, were used in pharmacies and hospitals to store spices and natural remedies

The writing translates as " lettuce seeds" and " cedar extract"

They can easily be converted into a small pair of bedside table lamps

Height 20 cm

Diameter 14 cm

Condition: as expected with maiolica there are several chips and flaking to the glaze which add to their charm
