earlier through mid 1800s cast lead APOTHECARY CAP

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

A rare companion piece to a nice 18th early 19th century apothecary flask or bottle, we have three original cast lead caps and are selling them individually priced for the collector who would like an example for display or to complete a nice period medical bottle or flask. Seldom seen today except in the oldest collections, the shaft of the cap fit loosely into the neck of the bottle with the weight and flat surface of the rounded cap providing a seal against the lip of the bottle. Easily removed for dispensing and quickly dropped back in place to make the seal, these cast lead caps were a handy utility in the 1700s early 1800s apothecary. Seldom surviving, I suppose to some extent, because of the multiplicity of lead use and the common re-purposing of the material by virtue of a simple charcoal fire and casting ladle original period examples are rarely seen today. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
