This past Sunday, while weaving my way through the Atlantic Antic street festival, I came across a little antique stand chock full of old glass bottles. There were all kinds -- from old school milk jugs to mason jars to flasks that once held embalming fluid. It was all I could do to keep from snatching up the whole lot of them, but I settled on two vintage apothecary bottles, choosing one for it's lovely, worn label, and the other for its dark amber hue. The fact that they only cost me $5 a pop makes them all the more beautiful.
You can't have mine, but I found some online that are just as nice.
These gorgeous amber bottles were handcrafted in the Czech Republic during the 1950's. Found at a Sunday market in Liege Belgium, they've since made their way to P.O.S.H. Chicago, where they can be had for $10 a piece.
