Vintage Glass Poison Bottle

Vintage Glass Poison Bottle

Our large vintage glass poison bottle is sure to provoke conversation! Made of light green glass, with a ribbed design, it is embossed around the neck with the word “POISON” and would have been used in the early 1900’s by an apothecary, for the storage of chemical compounds.

The word apothecary, which entered the English language in the 14th Century, derives from the Latin word apothēca, meaning “storehouse.” It became a title for the person who was skilled in preparing medicines.

This vintage glass poison bottle would work well together in a bathroom, with some other vintage bottles, or could be used as a bud vase.
