Description

Two ancient Italian pharmacy jars used to contain cantharide and opium powder.

The cantharide called the Spanish fly was considered a powerful aphrodisiac, but in reality it was a powerful urinary tract inflammatory, sometimes deadly. The two vases are in excellent condition with the original labels and the stamps that indicated the poisons as by law at the time
