This Spanish jar has a floral decoration. It was used to store an unidentified drug. Glasmaking flourished throughout Europe in the 19th century and although some companies and factories continued to produce high-quality items, many turned to mas production of enamelled, etched and cut glas. The Bohemians and the Austrians were the main innovators of nineteenth century Europe but by the end of the century their supremacy was on the wane.
