Restoration Hardware’s Amber Glass Pharmacy Bottles

Once filled with colorful tinctures and remedies, bottles like these once lined the shelves of European apothecaries in the 19th century. They’ve since found new purpose in the bath as decorative storage. The same Czech glassworks has crafted these machine-blown amber glass pharmacy bottles since 1827. The nearly airtight stoppers are custom ground for a perfect fit. Sold individually in small, medium, large and extra-large,  or as a set of three (small, medium and large), prices range from $14 to $48. For more information, visit RestorationHardware.com.
