These apothecary jars were handed down to me and I cannot find anything on the marks. I found the B H (maybe Blakeman and Henderson) but their marks are not the same. I found the crown symbol on the e-limoges website but it was listed amongst the marks where there's no information. The other one is handwritten with no identifiable marks so I cannot find any information.

If anyone has any information on the marks or can at least point me in the right direction to finding out more, I'd appreciate it.

    Interesting selection of labels.

    Yes they are pretty interesting :) I can't find a lot online on these jars w/ their provocative labels or these designs. I don't know what I'm going to do with them really. I just kind of acquired them (that's probably a better description than handed down....I didn't get them from grandma or anything). They're just wrapped up in boxes. There's just one website w/ Limoges' marks but nothing with the ones on these jars.

    @ AR8Jason - I have seen B&H for Blakeman and Henderson but I haven't seen any of their marks with crowns. The handwritten one is anyone's guess.

    FYI, cocaine, morphine and opium were staples in nearly every pharmacy and household before there were controls over pharmaceuticals. It was advertised as a cure for everything from headaches to baby teething. Not surprising that there would be containers for it just like tea or coffee.

    Great thing to have around when you first have your inlaws over hahaha. I don't think I'd advise giving your baby cocaine for teething, you'd be up all night!
