Green Pharmaceutical Phial

Item#: 93033




This Piece is a Historical Reproduction

Our Green Pharmaceutical Phial is a reproduction of an artifact recovered at Jamestown that backs to 1600 and 1650. Designed to store one dose of medicine, the artifact originally came from England where glassblowing at the time was still in its infancy and serves as an excellent example of a simple utilitarian design available during that period. The original item is on display at the Jamestown Glasshouse Visitor Center Museum, and your Green Pharmaceutical Phial is a memento of the Jamestown glassblowing tradition that has survived into present day!

Individually hand blown without metals, this item maintains historical accuracy as glass is naturally green and believed to be the only color available in Jamestown during the Colonial era. Though you may not have use for it today as a means of measuring medicine, it holds all the craftsmanship of Jamestown glassblowing and can be used as a cute vase for small, short stemmed flower arrangements in your home or office.
