Description
This blown and molded square–shaped bottle has a wide mouth and stopper. The white oval enamel cartouche is framed by blue vines, red and yellow flowers and a three-pointed crown. The label is marked with the alchemical symbol for powder and STOM B. The number "25" has been etched into the stopper. The jar likely would have contained a powdered substance for helping alleviate stomach pains.
