This blown and molded square–shaped glass bottle has a narrow neck and rounded shoulders. Its white baked enamel label is framed by a baroque–style blue and yellow cartouche. The label reads MIXT SIMPL RECT in black text, with the first initial of each word in red. The jar would have contained Mixtura Simplex Rectificata, a mixture of theriaca, vitriolic oil, and tartar that was used to relieve cramps and induce perspiration.
