Pharmacy Jars

Pharmacists and spice makers used these hand-painted majolica jars as containers for their essences and products such as roots, leaves of medicinal plants, essential oils, seeds or pulverized minerals.
Not only that, the ceramic jars that we see in pharmacies today long ago also contained ointments, personal fragrances and cooking aromas. Many Pharmacy jars made in the past seventeenth to eighteenth centuries are also on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris as a testament to how long your ceramic purchase can last.

The word that best describes this object is "Albarello".
