Pharmacy vase, Italy, 1740. The devil’s head at the base appears to be a dispensing hole for the contents of the large jar on the left (measuring 480 mm in height). Entwined snakes form the handles. The blue and white decorations show scenes of Roman battle and a Roman soldier dying from an arrow wound. The other side depicts more pleasant scenes of gods feeding each other grapes and a girl walking with a dog in the countryside. It is shown with a similar example (A631894). Drug jar.
