Description
Polychrome tin-glazed earthenware drug jar, with gothic drug name, from Venice late 16th early 17th century
The inscription on this drug jar, Salten , may be an Italian version of the German word zelten, meaning protective plaster . The jar was bequeathed to the Wellcome collections by the British laryngologist Sir St Clair Thomson (1856-1943). It is shown here with three other drug jars (A42538, A636311 and A636312).
