Antique Bassano Maiolica Pottery Albarello Wet Drug Jar with Apothecary's Name (Code 1947)
Along with the label there is a name around the base: Ciriaco - this would be the name of the apothecary, and it is quite a rare feature on this already rare form of drug jar. Note also the religious figure to the front of the jar making a hand gesture. An early and rare form for the collector.
Losses to the glaze with significant patches missing - see images for exterior condition. Some hairlines and cracks from stresses and some chipping. Spout cut down. Still a rare survivor and some 300 years old.
