The largest collection of its type in the world, these outstanding jars are among the Thackray Medical Museum’s most treasured possessions. Spanning several centuries, from the 1500s to the 1800s, the historically important collection includes 400 English examples and 200 from Italy and other countries. Many of the jars, which were used by pharmacists and apothecaries to store medicine and medicinal ingredients, are exquisite works of art in their own right.
